The funds raised at CASAblanca provide dedicated volunteers to hundreds of children each year, and we want you to be a part of it. Last year, 700 children still needed a CASA volunteer. You can help ensure that every child who has experienced abuse or neglect has a CASA volunteer speaking up for their best interest by sponsoring CASAblanca! As a sponsor you will enjoy many benefits including recognition before and during the event as well as tickets to CASAblanca (benefits determined by sponsorship level).
