On April 23, 2013, we celebrated our more than 550 dedicated volunteer advocates here in Austin with a party and dinner in their honor. Volunteers received many words of gratitude from The Honorable Darlene Byrne, Executive Director Laura Wolf, Program Director Key Richardson, and Director of Volunteers Sonia Kotecha. Our keynote speaker for the evening was Courtney Jones, a young woman who grew up in the foster care system, had a CASA volunteer of her own and who is now working to change and improve the foster system for other youth. Here are some excerpts from Courtney's Volunteer Appreciation speech about her experience in foster care and the difference her CASA volunteer made in her life.
For all the volunteers who could not attend the dinner, we want to thank you for your dedication and hard work advocating for Austin's children in need. We hope you enjoyed watching a small part of the evening through Courtney's video.
We also thank Barbara Frisbie & El Locavore Catering, Fresh Chefs Society, Andy Harn & Charlie Narayan and the Jewish Community Center of Austin for their help in making this event possible.
