The Parent Child Center of Tulsa’s friends and donors went “Under the Sea” for the Toyland Ball held Jan. 20 at the Cox Business Center in downtown Tulsa. Toyland Ball is the signature event of the Parent Child Center of Tulsa. Ruth and R.D. Al Sowards received the Guardian Angel award honoring them for the difference they have made in the Parent Child Center of Tulsa’s mission to prevent child abuse and neglect. The black tie optional gala was a success with cocktails, dinner, live auction, and dancing to the band Drive.
The mission of the Parent Child Center is to prevent child abuse and neglect through education, treatment, and advocacy. The vision is that all parents have the knowledge and skills to protect, nurture, and provide for their children.
