Event Update

A local family has joined as an event sponsor for this year's CAII Cupcakes and Cookies for Kids.

The Lamont Family is participating as a gold sponsor. They have supported this fun and tasty event for three years in a row.

With proceeds benefiting the Second Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program, CAII Cupcakes and Cookies for Kids is a friendly annual competition for amateur and professional bakers and an opportunity for the public to raise money for our program by sampling the delicious results.

This year's competition is on Saturday, April 16, 2016 at the Florida Department of Transportation W. Haydon Burns Building Auditorium across from Cascades Park in Downtown Tallahassee.

Visit gal2.org/cupcake for complete details and to purchase tasting cards, enter the competition or register as a sponsor.

Thank you to The Lamont Family for their support!

New Photograph

Starbucks Regional Manager Omega Wynn — longtime CAII board member and current board president — recently came across a photograph of himself with Circuit Director Deborah Moore at an event several years ago.

As a reflection of Wynn's dedication and service to the Second Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program and in recognition of our ongoing partnership, we have added this photograph to the Child Advocates II, Inc. page. Thanks, Omega!
