After a successful Fall Gala event, Cincinnati Eastside Rotary proudly presented CASA for Clermont Kids with a check for nearly $2,800! CASA has been a beneficiary of the Cincinnati Eastside Rotary Club’s generosity on several occasions.
The Cincinnati Eastside Gala focused its efforts specifically toward raising funds for organizations in the community that support and nurture the children in Clermont County. CASA for Clermont Kids, will use the funds to recruit, train, and support advocates for abused and neglected children who come under the jurisdiction of the Juvenile Court through no fault of their own. CASA is extremely grateful to be a recipient of the Cincinnati Eastside Rotary’s hard efforts toward helping children.
Other recipients of much needed funding included Boys and Girls Club, Inter Parish Ministries, and Stopping the Abuse Before it starts.
Lykins Energy Solutions presented CASA today with a check from the annual Golf Outing held at Legendary Run Golf Course. Special thanks to Copper Blue for all they do, Digimax for all their contributions and ALL the Lykins employees for tirelessly working each year to make this golf outing bigger and better. Im SO excited to announce this year Lykins raised $75,000. CASA simply would not be able to serve as many children as we do without the support Lykins provides each and every year. Sincere thanks from all of us here at CASA.
The Girls Night Out held last Thursday evening on October 13th at Baxla Tractor was a HUGE success!
