The Children’s Law Center of Central North Carolina will host its annual Birthday Blast on Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017.  The fundraising event will be held at The Millennium Center in downtown Winston-Salem and feature musical guest The Unbroken Circle, a multi-generation string band of Wake Forest University. Wake Forest School of Law’s Child Advocacy Clinic has been part of the Children’s Law Center of Central North Carolina since its inception in 1996.

The business casual event, sponsored by Kilpatrick Townsend Attorneys at Law, is set for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and includes drinks and hors d’oeuvres. The Unbroken Circle, which provides a fun-loving and eclectic blend of bluegrass, old-time and Americana music, is composed of Wake Forest students, faculty, administrators, alumni and friends who have performed together in various configurations since 2005.

This year’s event will honor Lorraine M. Mortis with the Pro Bono Attorney Award, David Sutton with the Volunteer Advocate Award and the North Carolina Bar Foundation with the Outstanding Supporter Award.

The Children’s Law Center of Central North Carolina provides legal advocacy for children in matters of domestic violence, abuse and neglect, high-conflict custody cases and educational issues, according to its website. The center is directed by Iris Sunshine (JD ’89), who also serves as the director of the Child Advocacy Clinic.
