By: Leah Frazier

The 30-Year Anniversary Celebration Gala for the Children & Family Institute (CFI), will take place on November 30, 2023, at the Hurst Conference Center. The evening promises to be an unforgettable experience, featuring a VIP reception with entertainment and a silent auction, followed by a delightful dinner at 7 pm. Dr. Froswa Booker-Drew will serve as the Honorary Chair for this event. Cynthia Izaguirre, anchor at WFAA in Dallas, TX, specializing in television news and weekly Wednesday’s Child reports, is being honored for her commitment to helping foster children find forever homes.

For three decades, the Children & Family Institute (CFI) has been dedicated to building, strengthening, and restoring families by providing loving, secure, and permanent homes for children in need. What began as a courageous leap of faith by its founder, Rose Nesbitt Jones, driven by a passion for the well-being of children and families, has grown into an organization that has positively impacted thousands of families both nationally and internationally.

This gala aims not only to celebrate the remarkable achievements of CFI but also to pave the way for an even brighter future. In line with its mission, it aspires to inspire the local community, raise essential funds for its agency’s programs, and establish The Rose Nesbitt Jones Educational Scholarship Fund. This fund will empower and support deserving youths who have been placed through the CFI agency to pursue their dreams of higher education.
