CASA for Kids, Inc. Annual Fundraiser

Media Release

CASA’s annual Children’s Charity Event has the reputation of being a super fun night for a very good cause.  This year’s theme is Hollywood Dance Party.

Attendees are encouraged to pick a movie and dress the part.  Many will come in costume as their favorite movie characters, actresses or actors.  Group costumes amp up the fun!  The evening includes a full buffet, open bar, the excitement of silent and live auctions and a made for Hollywood dance party!

The event will be held at the Payne County Expo Center on Saturday, February 10, 2018, with doors opening at 6:00 p.m.

The once a year CASA for Kids fundraising event raises approximately 20% of the annual operating budget for CASA in Payne and Logan Counties.  Financial support has a direct impact on our local community.  All of the money raised will stay within Payne and Logan Counties to aid in the recruitment and support of CASA’s growing volunteer base.  Every abused child deserves to have a CASA volunteer in their corner.

Corporate and Friends tables can be purchased for reserved seating.  General admission is $75 per person.  Registration is available on the CASA for Kids website at www.casaforkids.com or by calling 405-624-2242.

CASA for Kids is collecting donations of items, experiences, services, gift certificates, etc. from area businesses and individuals to include in the live and silent auctions, and to serve as prizes.

There are 340 abused and neglected children in the CASA for Kids service area who need a CASA volunteer.  CASA volunteer training sessions take place five times a year, with the next class beginning in February.  To become a volunteer, or to support CASA financially, please contact Ruth Cavins, Executive Director, at 405-624-2242 or email info@casaforkids.com.
