Who are we raising money for?

When children come to The CARE Center, their innocence has been taken away by the heartbreaking act of abuse. Brave Ball raises awareness and critical funds to support our services of forensic interviews, medical exams, counseling, and family support. Each of these are critical tools in helping children find hope and healing after abuse. Our children are brave. We simply help them reveal their courage and live a life not defined by their trauma.

What is Brave Ball?

Brave Ball is The CARE Center’s annual black-tie gala, and will be held Saturday, April 14, 2018 the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City. This is a special evening for friends and supporters of The CARE Center to celebrate the bravery and resilience of the children we serve. Our children have experienced abuse and are involved in an active investigation. Brave Ball celebrates their ongoing healing. The 2018 Brave Ball will feature amazing cuisine, prize pulls with incredible trips, jewelry, wine and other fun items, a Kendra Scott Jewelry Pull, a silent and live auction, entertainment, and an afterhours party overlooking the beautiful Oklahoma City skyline.
