LYKINS ENERGY SOLUTIONS 30TH ANNUAL CHARITY GOLF OUTING

Lykins Energy Solutions is pleased to present CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for Clermont Kids with a check for $85,000 this year, the proceeds from Lykins’ annual golf event. This donation equates to 38% of CASA’s annual budget. Since being named the beneficiary of the Lykins Energy Solutions Golf Outing back in 1998, Lykins has raised more than $820,000 for CASA from the charity golf event. The golf outing has been Lykins’ annual fundraiser since 1989 and with this year’s proceeds has now reached $1,000,000.00 for local non-profits in the past 30 years.

“We are honored to host this golf outing each year to benefit CASA for Clermont Kids,” says Lykins Energy Solutions president and CEO, Jeff Lykins.  “The continued support we receive for this event from our business partners and vendors is gratifying and heart-warming.  CASA’s work in our community is crucial, and the profits from the Lykins annual golf outing are a significant part of CASA’s annual budget. Those proceeds help fund a variety of programs to improve the lives of abused children in Clermont County.”  Lykins adds, “Lykins is a family owned business and wants to be a force for good, (hence their mission statement).  Our company’s foundation is built on doing the right thing and taking care of others. “This is just one of the reasons we chose CASA to be the recipient of our annual fundraising event” said Lykins.

CASA is a local non-profit agency that is working to improve the lives of abused and neglected children of Clermont County.  The organization serves nearly 200 children each year. Their trained community volunteers are appointed by the Clermont County Juvenile Court Judge to represent the best interests of victim children. CASA/GALs (Guardians Ad Litem) are the voice of the child in the courtroom and the eyes and ears of the Court outside of the Courtroom.  The mission of CASA is to assure permanence in a safe, loving family where the child/children can be respected and establish the dignity that all children deserve.

Lykins annual donation makes an enormous, positive impact on CASA and the services it provides. CASA’s biggest obstacle, other than maintaining funding every year, is the current case trend. “Without a doubt, opioids and heroin and now meth use are the biggest reason children come into foster care or into court”. says CASA for Clermont Kids Executive Director, Nathan Bell.  Bell adds that “The cases that come into court now are the worst of the worst cases.  The problems are deeper, the crisis has been going on in the family for longer, and the dysfunction is more entrenched.  This has an impact on our volunteers because it means the cases that we receive are more difficult, more complex, and are emotionally trying on our volunteers.  The cases also have been taking longer to resolve in court because of their difficulty. This means our CASAs are bound up in very challenging cases for longer periods of time, which makes them less available for new cases coming in because they are still trying to resolve the cases they have.”
