Conroe, TX (March 14, 2018) –So many community residents have needed assistance before during, and after Harvey. Crisis Assistance Center (CAC) has been serving clients county wide since 1981 offering a Client Choice food pantry, clothing, utility assistance, mortgage/rent assistance, furniture, and vouchers for transportation services. This is possible through contributions, donations, and community partners. The 2018 CAC Legacy Luncheon honors our community partners on Friday, April 6 at the Palmer Legacy Ballroom at The Woodlands Country Club in The Woodlands.
CAC is thrilled to welcome Dr. Rick Rigsby as the key note speaker of the 2018 Legacy Luncheon. Dr. Rick Rigsby is President and CEO of Rick Rigsby Communications.

Dr. Rick’s dynamic presentations motivate, empower and inspire worldwide—from Africa and Asia, to the Americas, Europe and Canada. Rick’s audiences include Fortune 500 companies, academic communities, and service organizations.
