Ready for a brush with celebrity, make that celebrities? The Child Abuse Prevention Center’s 18th annual dinner gala, co-chaired by Ann and Joel Hurley, delivers another thoroughly dynamic and entertaining lineup of local stars, with Bachelor- and Dancing With The Stars- alum Melissa Rycroft serving as the 2012 honorary celebrity chair. Master of Ceremonies Brendan Higgins will no doubt get the party started in witty style, too. Take note, this year is even more notable, as it honors the center’s 20th anniversary by recognizing 20-plus people who have been instrumental in the agency’s success over the years.
