CASA's "Golf for a Child" Invitational events were held at Kemper Lakes this past June and July. 
The golf season kicked off on June 16th with an event hosted by Underwriters Laboratory. The fun continued July 7th as CDW employees and partners came out for the cause. 
Over 200 golfers supported the organization, and raised a combined $150,000!
Thank you to all who came out to play - and especially to CDW and Underwriters Laboratories. Your generosity is changing lives for children in our community!
