Lauren Bair is the marketing coordinator for Child Advocates and Kelly St. Mary is the sponsorship director for the 32nd McDonald's Houston Children’s Festival which is happening on April 4 & 5. They're closing down several blocks of Downtown Houston for the biggest festival of its kind in this country. It all benefits Child Advocates who train mentors to help youths going through our court system.
Child Advocates go to court with these children to inform the judge on how they're doing mentally and physically and to ask for whatever need they may have. We talk about the great training program volunteers go through and we go through the list of awesome activities going on at the festival, including an appearance by SpongeBob Squarepants and other child-TV celebrities.
