ADKF was a proud Sponsor of Strength, at the annual Gallery of Hope event, held by Child Advocates of San Antonio (CASA), at the Witte Museum on October 3rd. ADKF staff in attendance were Audit Partner Susan Valdez, CPA; Bookkeeping Manager Teri Roybal and husband Robert; Marketing and Communications Specialist Angela Jacquez; Audit Intern Dominique Lopez; Audit Staff Steven Guerra, CPA with girlfriend Nelly; and Tax Manager Ashley Brand, CPA.
As attendees walked into the Witte Museum, Mays Family Center, poster-size photographs of the children were on display. The children are sometimes pictured alone or with their advocates. It’s a captured moment where they are relaxed, happy and smiling. Susan Valdez, Audit Partner, described the imagery as, “where they can finally breath.”
Each attendee was also given a postcard of one of the images, with the story from an advocate on the back, as a memento. During the evening there was a live and silent auction, dancing, and performances by children during the auctions. Some of the pieces being auctioned off were art work created by the children. Each table displayed a piece that could be bid on throughout the dinner.
