The fifth annual CASAblanca fundraiser to benefit the Piedmont CASA will be held on March 13 at 7 p.m. at the Jefferson Civic Center.
All proceeds from the event directly benefit children in foster care in Barrow, Jackson and Banks counties by providing them with a CASA volunteer – an impartial adult specially trained to advocate for the child’s interest as they work their way through the courts and social services systems.
For $75 ($60 for senior citizens), participants will get a buffet dinner, bar with beer and wine, and $5,000 in play money for casino-style gaming – from cards to craps. All participants are also entered into a grand prize drawing, and the winner receives a free week at a house at Lake Hartwell, complete with jet skis and boat.
Tickets are available at PakMail, the Superior Court Clerk’s office and Piedmont CASA.
Piedmont CASA is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization whose mission is to recruit, train and supervise volunteers to provide a voice for foster children in Juvenile Court. Since 1990, Piedmont CASA volunteers have helped more than 300 children in Barrow, Banks and Jackson counties.
