AUSTIN (KXAN) — KXAN is a proud sponsor of the Black and White Ball benefiting the Texas Advocacy Project. 

The group is a non-profit law firm that provides free legal help for victims of sexual assault, stalking, domestic and dating violence.

Helen Haman with Accenture, the title sponsor of the ball, joined us in the studio to discuss the event.

The ball is Friday, Oct. 28 at the JW Marriott Austin Hotel starting at 7 p.m. Outstanding community leaders will be honored at the Ball for their service preventing domestic violence across Texas.

Texas Supreme Court Justice Eva Guzman will receive the Project’s Vision Award. The Generosity of Spirit Award will be presented to Stephanie and Caroline McKenzie, and the Courage Award will be given to Hailey, a former teen client, for escaping abuse and starting a new life.
