The Children’s Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida thanks its 2nd annual Rescue Runway sponsors: Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Brown & Brown Insurance, Edison National Bank, Markham Norton Mosteller Wright & Co. P.A. and supporter Seed and Bean Market. Thanks to them and all the online voters for king, queen, pet costume and silent auction bidders, CAC was able to raise $10,615 for its programs and services for child victims of abuse. 

Without the help of the community and sponsors, the total amount raised would not have been achievable. In addition to the grand total raised, the Rescue Royalty Queen and King have been crowned. After weeks of fundraising, the winners are Chloe for Rescue Royalty Queen and Barnaby for Rescue Royalty King. And Best Pet Costume Winner is Micky, dressed as “tiny Santa.” 

Since 1981, Children’s Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida, Inc. (CAC), a United Way partner agency, has worked to improve the lives of children and their families through a coordinated response to child abuse and neglect, offering them a safe and friendly environment in which to heal. CAC provides abuse determination services as well as therapeutic counseling, parenting education and prevention programs in Lee, Hendry, Glades and Charlotte Counties.
