CASA Palooza 2017 is on its way!

Restaurants, caterers and drink vendors across a five-county area will join together for a cause that serves children in Northeastern Indiana.

CASA Palooza is an annual event the raises funds and awareness for Northeastern Indiana CASA, a nonprofit organization aimed at advocating for children who find themselves in judicial proceedings. 

"Our staff and volunteers work to provide a voice for these powerless children," said Executive Director Kristi Bachman. "We strive to advocate for their best interests and improve their circumstances and quality of life."

Last year, CASA Palooza raised more than $56,000 for the organization, and this year the event looks to surpass that previous benchmark. With area business and organizations acting as sponsors, the event will allow ticket holders to sip and savor a variety of cuisine from DeKalb, Lagrange, Noble, Whitley and Steuben counties. 

CASA Palooza will be held Friday, April 21st at Sylvan Cellars Event Center in Rome City. The event will start at 6:30 p.m. and more information, as well as online tickets, can be found at or by calling 260-636-6101.
