Dallas CASA to host Cherish the Children Award Luncheon on May 5

Dallas CASA will host the 2023 Cherish the Children luncheon Friday May 5 at The Statler. Benefiting the children served by Dallas CASA, the luncheon will be hosted by Dallas CASA Children’s Council.

Dallas CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) recruits, trains and supervises community members to serve as volunteer advocates for children living in the protective care of the state.

The luncheon will honor Sally Hoglund and Kristy Hoglund Robinson with the 2023 Caroline Rose Hunt Cherish the Children Award for their dedication to children who have experienced abuse or neglect. The mother-daughter pair are part of the philanthropic force that is The Hoglund Foundation, a longtime supporter of Dallas CASA.

The award, which recognizes individuals or organizations for outstanding contributions helping children who have been removed from home due to abuse or neglect, is named for longtime friend of Dallas CASA Caroline Rose Hunt because of her constant dedication to the most vulnerable in our city and to helping people who could not help themselves.

The luncheon will feature speaker Cortney Jones, founder of Change1, an Austin-based nonprofit supporting youth aging out of foster care. Jones, who was served by Dallas CASA as a teenager, faced aging out after 25 placements in foster care as well as abuse and trauma. She took her challenges and channeled them into becoming a vehicle of change for children like herself. She has worked at Child Protective Services, lending her voice to create change, and is a parent of two children adopted from foster care.

Lynn Fisher, director of corporate giving for The Rosewood Corporation, will be honorary chair of the 2023 Cherish the Children luncheon. Fisher’s roles also include vice president of the Rosewood Foundation, director of philanthropy for the Caroline Rose Hunt family and director of the Moozie Foundation, a family foundation created by Mrs. Hunt for her grandchildren. Fisher is celebrating 38 years of service to Rosewood, Mrs. Hunt’s family and the Dallas community.

Luncheon co-chairs are Veree Brown, a Dallas CASA board member, and Kim Meth, a Dallas CASA volunteer. Both are longtime members of Dallas CASA Children’s Council.
