About Gainesville Gone

We are looking forward to gathering with friends and supporters of the Child Advocacy Center (CAC) for our 14th Annual Signature Fundraiser - Gainesville Gone New Orleans on Thursday, October 27th, from 6:30pm-9:30pm at Valley View in Alachua!  This will be an amazing night of food, drink, live music, and entertainment to celebrate the CAC and reflect on the impact the CAC has had on the thousands of abused or neglected children in our community over the past year. 

During 2021, the CAC served a total of 2,101 child victims of abuse and 1,710 caregivers, 42 survivors of human trafficking, and 24 child sexual abuse content cases. A total of 233 forensic interviews and 6,230 therapy sessions were provided for children and families.

Last year, we returned to our in-person event format by “traveling” to a brand-new city, New Orleans! Thanks to generous supporters like you, we were able to raise over $130,000! We are committed to making Gainesville Gone New Orleans 2022 our most successful event yet! The funds provided this year will support operations and the growth required within the CAC to help more children and continue to work to meet our mission – to meet the needs of abused children in our community. 


Thank You to Our 2022 Sponsors!
