Appreciates support for CASA event
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of the 15th Judicial Circuit, which serves abused and neglected children of Lee, Ogle and Carroll counties, recently hosted a Celebrity Waiter Dinner as a fundraiser. Local community leaders served as waiters for their guests, our friends and community supporters of CASA. Guests “tipped” their waiters generously, with all proceeds going to CASA.
On behalf of the CASA board, I’d like to sincerely thank all those who participated in this fun and successful fundraiser. Because of your support, our volunteers can better serve and represent abused and neglected children in the juvenile court system.
Our volunteers act as the “squeaky wheel” to ensure that children have a voice in court and that permanency is achieved as quickly as possible.
Because of such tremendous community support, fewer children will fall through the cracks. What a gift you have given.
Note to readers – Deborah Crowson is a CASA board member.
