Letter to the Editor: CASA seeks Ogle County volunteers
As the member of the CASA board, I would like to urge the citizens of Ogle County to consider becoming a CASA volunteer. CASA serves the children of Lee, Ogle, and Carroll Counties. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) are trained individuals that are appointed by a Judge to speak for the best interests of a child in court. These children are at risk due to abuse and neglect in situations they do not deserve to be in. A CASA volunteer provides a Judge with factual information regarding the child to help the court make positive decisions for the child’s future.
As you can imagine, our CASA board is working hard to keep a balanced budget. Throughout the year we do many fundraisers to keep this program going for the child’s sake. On November 7 we are hosting a Dueling Pianos event at the LaBranche in Polo. All tip proceeds go to CASA. It’s a fun, entertaining night. If anyone would like more information regarding this event, please call us at 815-222-6780.
Please consider becoming involved with this worthy program. You can make the difference in the life of a child. For information on becoming a volunteer, please email us at casadirector@CASA15.comcastbiz.net.
