The Capital Region Court-Appointed Special Advocates Association is holding its 27th annual Casas for CASA fundraiser, with tickets on sale June 1.
All proceeds go to the Capital Area CASA Association, a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains and supervises volunteers who advocate for abused and neglected children in need of safe and permanent homes. Fundraising allows Capital Area CASA to continue serving every child in East Baton Rouge Parish who needs a voice.
Fundraising kicks off with the 2021 CASA “Magnolia Mansion” gambling house on display June 1 – July 25 at the East Baton Rouge Main Library, 7711 Goodwood Blvd. Raffle tickets cost $ 5 each and will be available online at casabr.org. The playhouse was designed by Lilliput Play Homes and assembled by local builders Faulk and Meek General Contractors.
The winner will be announced at a virtual CASA Fiesta on Sunday, July 25, when guests can watch the event online while enjoying on-the-go tacos from the Superior Grill Highland Road restaurant only. Takeout taco tickets can be purchased online for $ 50, and guests can participate in a wine tasting when they pick up their order.
There will also be a silent auction, which will be held online only. You will be able to register and shop online from July 12 to 25.
The fundraising is felt by title sponsor iHeart Media. Platinum Sponsors include the East Baton Rouge Parish Library, General Contractors Faulk & Meek, Lamar Advertising, Superior Grill, Community Network, and Louisiana Healthcare Connections.
