Together, we raised enough to provide more children with a CASA of their own this year!

Sincere thanks to those who participated and gave this past Tuesday. You helped move us even closer to supporting every child in need!

CASA Thanks Two Special Donors This Holiday Season

First time, donors, the Sacks Family Foundation chose to help protect five children in the coming year with their gift of support. And this gift gets even bigger and better - because, as a new donor, a portion of this gift will be matched by an anonymous donor. 

CASA is also the grateful recipient of a grant from the foundation of Lake Forest-based pharmaceutical company Hospira. Over the past eight years, Hospira Foundation and their employees have granted and gifted CASA over $30,000 in support of our advocacy 
efforts for children. 

Thank you to our new friends Sacks Family Foundation, and our faithful friends, Hospira Foundation, for helping us keep children safe yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
