CASA Palooza 2018 is slated for April 20th at Sylvan Cellars in Rome City. This event is Northeastern Indiana CASA's annual fundraiser that features tasting stations with food and drinks from area caterers and restaurants. There is also a silent auction with proceeds from the event directly benefiting Northeastern Indiana CASA.
"Last year, with the support and help of generous community members, sponsors, volunteers and business, we raised $48,000," said Executive Director Kristi Bachman. "But we are excited to exceed this number this year. Already we have several business and community sponsors."
This nonprofit organization serves Dekalb, Whitley, Lagrange, Steuben and Noble counties with a focus on advocating for children involved in judicial proceedings. Northeastern Indiana CASA supports and promotes court-appointed volunteer advocacy so abused or neglected children can be safe, have a permanent home and the opportunity to thrive.
"Our staff and volunteers all work to provide a voice for children in our area," Bachman said. "We advocate for their best interests and strive to improve their circumstances and quality of life. What we do has a long-lasting impact on the children we serve, which makes events like CASA Palooza so important in order for us to keep our mission empowered to make that difference."
