In recognition of her commitment to the children of our community, the Dallas CASA Children’s Council will honor Beverly Levy with the Caroline Rose Hunt Cherish the Children Award. The award recognizes an individual or organization for outstanding contributions helping children who have been removed from home due to abuse or severe neglect.
Retired since 2014, Beverly led Dallas CASA for more than half of its 40-year history, bringing her unique blend of care and nurturing, relationship-building, and relentless cheerleading. She valued children above all else, and that legacy lives on at Dallas CASA today. Her leadership always put children first, and she positioned Dallas CASA and the agency’s remarkable volunteers to be changemakers.
We will also welcome guest speaker Liz Murray, author of Breaking Night: A Memoir of Forgiveness, Survival, and My Journey from Homeless to Harvard. Murray transformed her own life of despair into one of remarkable strength, determination and hard-won success. Today a mother, wife and college graduate, Murray speaks powerfully about the impact of having advocates on the lives of vulnerable children.
The Cherish the Children luncheon raises funds for Dallas CASA by auctioning artfully-designed, one-of-a-kind children’s chairs and furnishings. Proceeds are used to support the volunteer advocates who help abused children find safe, permanent and loving homes.
