El Paso Child Guidance Center annual roast to feature Jon Barela, CEO, Borderplex Alliance

The El Paso Child Guidance Center is set for yet another jovial night of good humor in service of a worthy cause on October 20, 2021, for the 19th Annual Dinner and Roast. 

This year’s honoree has a big heart, thick skin, and better hair than a TV news anchor. Join officials as they  honor former lawyer, former politician, and former Las Cruces High School “bull-dawg” student body president Jon Barela, CEO of The Borderplex Alliance.

“The skewers are sharp, tinder and flint gathered, and a target-rich honoree identified; all we need is you,” organizers shared. “This not-to-be-missed event is the El Paso Child Guidance Center’s largest (and funniest) event as well as a critical source of funds to continue their outstanding work in service children and families of El Paso.”

All proceeds benefit the Center to provide mental health services to children and families in the El Paso community.

Tickets are $275 per person or $2,000 for a table of eight. For more information or to sponsor the event, call 915-562-1999 x 1039 or go online.

Since 1954, the El Paso Child Guidance Center has had a long-standing tradition of providing high quality outpatient mental health services for children and families including psychiatric evaluations; individual, family and group therapy; case management; and mental health education and advocacy.

EPCGC staff is also available to provide community trainings for fellow mental health professionals or any other entity serving children and adolescents. For more information on services, please contact the EPCGC (915) 562-1999 or visit www.epcgc.org.
