CASA for Kids Raises Awareness About the Challenges Faced by Abused and Neglected Children

CASA for Kids Inc. in Washington County PA is holding a fundraising event “Chef’s for CASA” on April 24th at Bella Sera Event Venue in Canonsburg, PA.  Registration begins at 6:30 p.m.  The cost for individuals to attend is $100, sponsorships are available at the $1,250 level and $500 level.

This event is to make people aware of the struggles and challenges faced by abused / neglected children in the juvenile dependency court system.  Through no fault of their own, these children’s lives are changed in so many untold ways.  It is the role of the CASA volunteer advocate to make sure these children have a voice in the court and to investigate all aspects of the child’s life to present a “whole” picture of that child to the Judge at every court hearing.  CASA Volunteer Advocates push to make sure the child’s needs are met and they find a safe permanent home.

The food for the evening is being donated by the chef’s from Angelo’s Restaurant, Arlecchino’s Restaurant, Bartolotta’s Giant Eagle, Bartram House Bakery, Bella Sera, Franco’s Trattoria and Krency’s Bakery.  Michelle Wright from WTAE will act as our guest emcee with entertainment provided by Adam Brock and The Ken Berrymore Trio.
