Volunteer Appreciation 2015

 In honor of National Volunteer Appreciation Week, CASA of El Paso hosted a party at the El Paso Chihuahuas game on Monday, April 27th.  It was our chance to say thank you to the wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly for our program and El Paso's foster care youth.  We had a great time honoring our volunteers and watching great baseball!  Each supervisor recognized their 2015 Volunteer All-Star and the staff as a whole announced this year's CASA Volunteer of the Year!  Thank you once again to everyone for advocating for your children!  Together we CAN make a difference!

Casas for CASA 2015
Casas for CASA 2015 was held on Thursday, April 16 at 150 Sunset Event Center and was a hit!  We are happy to say that our fundraiser was very successful--both in the amount of fun we had AND the amount of money we raised!  It was a sold out crowd who enjoyed the silent auction, dinner and inspiring speech by Ashley Rhodes-Courter. 
Thank you to everyone who supported this event and helped make it a success!

CASA in the Community
April is Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month, making it a busy time for CASA!  We were happy to be invited to a number of fairs and presentations to represent CASA in the community.  We were also pleased to receive media coverage of both our fundraiser and CASA in general.  Thank you to KTSM Newschannel 9 and El Paso Inc for their continued coverage and to Telemundo and Univision for new Spanish coverage.

Sincerely,
