Sponsor Grand Night

 

January 8, 2015

Dear CASA Supporter,

For an abused or neglected child, a CASA volunteer is someone who listens. Someone who fights for that child, reaching out to teachers, social workers, parents, lawyers, caregivers and anyone else who can meet that child’s needs. Someone whose sole mission is to help clear a path out of the complex, overburdened child welfare system and into a safe, permanent home.

We know that the CASA model works. Research shows that a child with a CASA volunteer is half as likely to spend time in long-term foster care as one without a volunteer. Once that child leaves the system, he or she is much more likely to stay out of foster care permanently.

Training these volunteers, supporting our full time staff of three, and having ample supplies require money. The county supports CASA each year. The remaining budget comes from donations, fundraisers and grants.

Behind every CASA volunteer who lifts up the voice and life of an abused or neglected child stands a generous donor like you. Our major fundraiser is A Grand Night for CASA .  Our major fundraiser is A GRAND NIGHT for CASA.  Banks and Shane will be our featured entertainers again this year.  The Banks & Shane band is comprised of Banks Burgess on banjo and guitar, Paul Shane on guitar and trombone, Chich Shane on drums and electric bass, Jim Durand on electric guitar, bass and acoustic guitar and Dennis Law on drums.  The versatility of this band is impressive indeed.  They can move effortlessly from country to folk to oldies rock & roll and back again, with something to please everyone.

This letter is to give you the date to save and to solicit your support as a sponsor for this event.  Grand Night will be held on Saturday, March 21 in the Ballroom at the University of West Georgia.  Please join is at one of the levels listed on the next  page.  With nearly 200 children pasing through foster care each year, there are simply not enough volunteers to go around.  Whild Carroll County CASA is not serving 88 children, presently there are 28 children still needing CASA volunteers.  That is why Carroll County CASA has made a commitment - a promise to our children - to put a CASA volunteer into the life of every child who needs one.  Your gift can take us one step closer to fulfilling this promise.

Individual tickets are $75 and may be purchased at the CASA office. You may also make donations or purchase tickets online at our website at www.carrollcasa.org.

Carroll County CASA

 
 
Concerned over making decisions about abused and neglected children's lives without sufficient information, a Seattle judge conceived the idea of using trained community volunteers to speak for the best interests of these children in court. So successful was this Seattle program that soon judges across the country began utilizing citizen advocates.
 
In 1990, the U.S. Congress encouraged the expansion of CASA with passage of the Victims of Child Abuse Act. Today more than 900 CASA programs are in operation, with 62,000 women and men serving as CASA volunteers. CASA is an acronym for Court Appointed Special Advocate. The mission of Carroll County CASA, Inc. is to provide carefully screened, trained and supervised volunteers to represent the best interests of abused and neglected children in juvenile court until a safe, permanent home is assured.
