Cass County CASA hosts 10th annual auction, dinner

Right here in Cass County, there are abused and neglected children who live in the shadows.

Once a year, the Court Appointed Special Advocates reach out to the community to help us help these children with the belief that every child has a right to thrive, to be seen and heard and to be treated with dignity.

Everyone is invited to the 10th annual CASA Reception, Auction & Dinner at Our Lady of the Lake Social Hall in Edwardsburg at 6 p.m. Friday, June 24, to show support for Cass County CASA volunteers and children in foster care.
