CASA’s volunteer advocates work to achieve safety, permanency and well-being for these kids by advocating for their best interests in the courts and community.

In addition to the show, and included in the ticket price, the event will also feature a silent auction, and a decadent dessert buffet featuring items and treats donated from local and regional businesses.
