MONTGOMERY, ALA. (June 19, 2012) – Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C. Shareholder Kendall Dunson and his wife Samarria Munnerlyn Dunson led an event on May 31, 2012, at Super Suppers Montgomery to help raise awareness for Child Protect Children’s Advocacy Center. Dunson is on the Board of Directors for Child Protect and campaigns on their behalf regularly.
“We are grateful beyond measure for the continued support Kendall Dunson and his wife, Samarria, unselfishly contribute to Child Protect,” Jannah Bailey, executive director of Child Protect, said. “They truly have servants’ hearts and great passion for abused children that come through our doors every day. We could not continue our service to the least of these without their belief in our cause. They have left their handprints on the hearts of many of the children we serve.”
Established in November of 1989, Child Protect was originally developed to aid the Department of Human Resources and law enforcement in their investigation of child abuse, both physical and sexual. Today, Child Protect operates as a 501c3 non-profit agency. It saves countless children from endless interrogations by creating an atmosphere where a child can tell his or her story once and have it recorded for future use.
The fund-raising event consisted of a cooking demonstration, chef tasting and wine tasting to highlight local and seasonal produce in five different courses. All of the food was graciously donated by the venue of the event, Super Suppers, located in the Peppertree Shopping Center off Vaughn Road.
Around the end of the evening, a presentation on Child Protect was given by Kendall Dunson. He emphasized the importance of the donations for Child Protect and what it does for child victims of physical, mental and sexual abuse. Everyone attending the event donated to Child Protect Children’s Advocacy Center, raising a grand total of $1,000.
