Child Advocacy Services is looking for teams and support for its fourth annual Voices for the Children Bowl on March 7 in Hammond.

The fundraiser is a flag football tournament for law enforcement, firefighters and corporations to benefit and support services for children.

The Voices for Children Bowl was started by Hammond Police Department detective Corey Stewart, who worked closely with the Children’s Advocacy Center on child abuse cases. His vision was to provide support to the Children’s Advocacy Center to better serve children.

The Children’s Advocacy Center provides advocacy, forensic interviews, prevention education and additional services to children in 10 parishes serving southeast Louisiana, a news release said.

It costs Child Advocacy Services $1,541 to provide services to one child for a year, organizers said in a news release. The goal this year is for each team to raise $1,541 through the First Giving Team pledge pages.
