Warrick County CASA Hosting Kid’s Day Fundraiser in Boonville May 7th
Sometimes it can be tough finding something to do on the weekend that everyone in the family will enjoy. Having younger kids can make that search even more difficult. Sure, you can go to the playground at your local park, and we have several great playgrounds and parks around the Tri-State, but you can only slide down the same slide, climb on the same monkey bars, and swing on the same swings so many times before even the kids get bored with it. Fortunately, as spring and summer begin to make their way into the Tri-State, more and more organizations are scheduling family-friendly events everyone can enjoy. That list includes Warrick County CASA, which invites you to join them for their Kid's Day fundraising event in early May.
What Does CASA Stand For?
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. They are a national organization with branches all across the country that pairs adult volunteers with children who find themselves in terrible living situations where they are neglected and/or abused with no one to stick up for them. Advocates fill that role by serving as their voice in the court system. Since its inception back in 1977, the program has grown to "more than 75,000 advocates serving in 951 state and local programs."
