Sue and Jim Lockwood were named Child Advocate of the Year for 2013 at Child Advocates of Fort Bend’s Annual Volunteer Celebration held February 5, at Sweetwater Country Club. The event was attended by almost 150 volunteers, community partners and staff.

“The Lockwoods exemplify the ultimate in volunteerism to the agency – going “above and beyond”, donating their time and support across many different areas and unselfishly being available any time they are needed – always with a smile on their faces and shying away from any type of recognition,” according to Executive Director Ruthanne Mefford.

Other honorees at the volunteer celebration include Marilyn Glover (Lifetime Hero Award), Mattie Ford (CASA Volunteer of the Year), Steve McDonough (Children’s Advocacy Center Volunteer of the Year), and Pat Somers (Development Volunteer of the Year).

The agency’s annual gala and auction raises much needed funds to support its programs for abused and neglected children. Child Advocates of Fort Bend’s Cinderella Ball will be held May 3, at the Sugar Land Marriott Town Square.
