Camera For A Cure & Children's Advocacy Center

The Crystal Anniversary Celebration presented by GCMC Medical Staff & Janet Weis Children’s Hospital will take place on Friday, September 6
The Children's Advocacy Center of NEPA, located on Mulberry Street in Scranton, will hold its Crystal Anniversary Celebration at The Radisson Lackawanna Station on Friday September 6.  Timmy Walsh, Camera For A Cure creator and photographer, will be in attendance as their junior event photographer.  Working alongside photographer Julie Jordan, Walsh will mingle with guests, capturing candid shots of this special night.  Volunteering for the CAC has been a passion for Walsh, starting with his first show for the CAC at their Moonlight Walk, May 2011. 
The Crystal Anniversary Celebration presented by GCMC Medical Staff & Janet Weis Children’s Hospital will take place on Friday, September 6, at the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel in Downtown Scranton. This event is a celebration of The Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s (CAC/NEPA) 15th anniversary. The event will also honor two prestigious recipients whose commitment and devotion to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania has both sustained its services and helped it grow. The CAC is currently accepting reservations and donations for the raffles. 
The Children's Advocacy Center was developed through the Lackawanna County District Attorney's Office in 1998. At present, it serves Lackawanna and eight surrounding counties.  Known for its bright pink door, the center is located on the Community Medical Center campus, 1710 Mulberry Street, Scranton.  A second location, geared directly towards teens, will soon be available for treatment.
 
At the CAC, a multidisciplinary approach is used in the evaluation and investigation of abuse. They collaborate with each Counties District Attorney's Office, Child Protective Services, Law Enforcement and Mental Health. The goal of the CAC is to prevent further trauma to victims of physical and sexual abuse and neglect by providing professional services in one location. This allows for one interview of the victim to be done, thereby lessening the confusion associated with multiple reporting. All medical exams (unless victim is in hospital emergency room) and interviews are done at The Children's Advocacy Center (CAC).
 
In addition to being an event photographer, Walsh also donated towards the basket raffle.
Camera For A Cure is a non profit fundraiser started by Timmy Walsh, then 5 years old, with his first showing at the age of 6. Walsh takes photographs & sells them with proceeds going to the Lung Cancer Alliance. Now, at the age of 11, he continues to raise funds for cancer research along with other diseases and causes. He is an Olyphant resident and a student at Wyoming Seminary Lower School.
