Gala 2018

The Children’s Law Center of Connecticut (CLC) is excited to celebrate its 25th Anniversary with a celebration Gala at Delamar West Hartford. The Gala will be held on Thursday, November 29, 2018, from 5:30 – 8:30 pm.

Twenty six years ago, a six-year-old girl was shot and killed by her father during a supervised visitation. From this tragedy sprang a coalition of concerned professionals and parents united to examine the weaknesses in the system that had failed that child. The lack of legal services for children in family court was identified as a major concern, and this led to the founding of The Children’s Law Center. In 2017, CLC touched the lives of over 1,750 children in a meaningful way, moving their tumultuous family circumstance in a positive direction.

Sponsorship and program ads provide a unique opportunity to celebrate and support CLC’s important work and be recognized among regional leaders and businesses at our Gala, which attracts over 300 community leaders, attorneys, business executives, donors and friends. The evening will include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, culinary stations, as well as live and silent auctions.
