The Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA) organization is honoring NBC4’s own Barbara Harrison on April 28 with the 1st annual Barbara Harrison Child Advocacy Award.

Harrison is being recognized for her more than 20 years of reporting on the lives of children in foster care, as well as her efforts in motivating women to seek early prenatal care.

Her weekly “Wednesday’s Child” segment has changed the lives of more than 700 children in the Washington metropolitan area, all of whom have been successfully placed in homes as a result of Harrison’s work.

From 8-11 p.m. April 28 at The Universities at Shady Grove (9639 Gudelsky Drive, Rockville, Md.), guests can enjoy a night of blackjack, poker and roulette while helping a child in need. There will also be a silent auction and wine, coffee, and desserts will be served.

Tickets are $75 per person and guests must RSVP by April 13 in order to attend.

The Barbara Harrison Child Advocacy Award was established to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the CASA Program of Montgomery County, Md. The award recognizes individuals who show exemplary leadership in child advocacy.
