CASA for Clermont Kids, the only Cleramont County Agency providing citizen advocates for court-involved neglected and abused children, held its annual major fundraiser on October 25th at the Holiday Inn Eastgate. CASA’s Major Corporate Sponsor is Lykins Energy Solutions. The event’s Advocacy Sponsor was once again Park National Bank. By the numbers: 250 guests, 180 cans of beer, 100 bottles of wine, 62 silent auction baskets, 9 raffle baskets, 4 live auction items, 1 lucky cash box and dozens of generous corporate and private donors helped CASA for Clermont Kids raise over $59,000 to train and support advocates who are out in the community helping to change the stories of neglected and abused children, one child or one family at a time.
This year, 47 CASA volunteers have served over 200 children in need of advocates. CASA for Clermont Kids is a 501(c)(3) fully funded by the generosity of the community it serves and a few small grants. Without the annual financial support of the corporate and private citizens in this area CASA for Clermont Kids could not continue its important work. On behalf of the children we serve, from the bottom of our hearts we thank the community once again for stepping up to support our mission this year. #changeachildsstory
