Dorothy from “The Wizard of Oz” said it best — “there’s no place like home” — and I couldn’t agree more. That’s the theme of our largest fundraising event, “The No Place Like Home” fundraiser scheduled for 6 p.m. July 14 in the Music Hall in the newly renovated Grand Galvez Hotel.

Big plans are in full swing with the event planning committee, which includes me, event co-chairs Sheila Meritt and Lydia Cook, Diana Smith, Wendy Baldwin, Kelli Scheussler, Lyndsey Schilling, Ronda Kueck and Ratha Liladrie.

Connie Ricketts is the executive director of the Court Appointed Special Advocates of Galveston County.
