CASA's "Golf for a Child" Invitational events were held at Kemper Lakes this June. The golf season kicked off on June 15th with an event hosted by Aon, and continued June 22nd as CDW employees and partners came out for the cause. Nearly 200 golfers supported CASA, despite inclement weather at both outings! Thank you to all who came out to play - and especially to CDW, Aon, and HP. Your generous support will better the lives of children in our community!
