Dirk and Jessica Nowitzki.

Dallas Casa hosts its annual Champion of Children Award Dinner Thursday, Nov. 14, 6 p.m. at the Omni Dallas Hotel. Jessica and Dirk Nowitzki will be honored with the Champion of Children Award for their work with children in the community. The award will be presented by honorary chairs, Mayor Eric Johnson and his wife, Nakita. In addition two co-chairs, Greg and Hannah May and Janice and Richard Davis, live in Preston Hollow.

Keynote speaker Judge Rosemarie Aquilina is the judge who allowed more than 150 abuse survivors to testify in court against former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar.

The Champion of Children Award dinner raises money for Dallas CASA. All proceeds are used to support the volunteer advocates who help ensure the safety and well-being of child victims of abuse and neglect who are in foster care.
