10 teams link up with CASA for golf benefit

AUBURN — For a second year, Auburn’s chapter of the Loyal Order of Moose hosted a golf benefit for Northeastern Indiana CASA. The Order is dedicated to “ caring for young and old, bringing communities together and celebrating life,” so its partnership with Northeastern Indiana CASA was perfectly aligned.

Northeastern Indiana CASA focuses on advocating for children involved in judicial proceedings by speaking up for the child’s best interests and striving to improve their circumstances and quality of life.

In 2018, the nonprofit organization served more than 700 children, but 64 children went unserved due to a shortage of volunteers. However, through events such as the Moose’s golf benefit, awareness is growing for the need for volunteers. >>>read more>>>

2 Long-Time Volunteers Retire

You know how much we love and appreciate our volunteers! Two of our amazing CASAs retired recently and we just want to offer a special "thanks" to them. Linda Stanton started volunteering in 1998! Since 2004 she has served 30 kids. Barb Bauer has volunteered for 12 years and has served 35 kids. No doubt these ladies have made a HUGE impact on these kiddos and we are so blessed by their service. If you'd like to serve and volunteer, visit www.neincasa.net to get started.
