Private VIP Viewing event of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ for those impacted by abuse and neglect
Family law firm, Balekian Hayes PLLC, with the assistance of Dallas CASA and Child Protection and Permanency Court Judge, Judge Gonzales, hosted more than 100 children in the care of Dallas County Child Protective services to enjoy a day at the movies on May 4, 2019, at Studio Movie Grill in Dallas, Texas. Children impacted by abuse and neglect were treated to the ultimate movie experience featuring a private VIP viewing of the record-breaking Avengers: Endgame, with plenty of snacks, drinks, popcorn and surprise raffle items.
According to Dallas CASA, more than 4,300 Dallas County children lived in the protective care of the state in 2018. On average, more than six children are removed from their home due to abuse or neglect each day in Dallas.
“Spending a day at the movies is a luxury that many children in child protective services don’t often experience,” says Kris Balekian Hayes, president of Balekian Hayes, PLLC. “We created this event to give children impacted by abuse and neglect a day of stress-free entertainment that helps provide a sense of normalcy and respite from the everyday challenges they face.”
