NonProfitView – CASA Day On the Green

NonProfit View
By Steve Ashmun

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Stanislaus County’s mission is to provide quality advocacy services for all abused and neglected children in the dependency system through the use of trained volunteers. Become a CASA Volunteer and be rewarded with some of the most fulfilling experiences you can find. Your involvement as a Court Appointed Special Advocate will provide a “Light of Hope” In your assigned child’s life. We welcome volunteers from all cultures, professions, ethnic and educational backgrounds. Once you complete their application and training process (interviews, background checks and 36 hours of training and 10 hours of court observation), you will be sworn in as an officer of the Court by the dependency judge. You will then pick a case from one of the 400 plus children on their waiting list and you’ll be on your way to providing a much needed service to that child and our Court. Stand up and speak for the most vulnerable children in our community, our children in foster care.

If you would like to support CASA’s efforts to meet the needs of these children and families, join us for the most epic June fundraiser. Not only are the memories of Day on the Greens gone by coming back, one of the most legendary party bands in the Bay Area will be rockin the greens at Del Rio. Please join us the evening of JUNE 25, 2016 at the Del Rio Country Club for an outdoor concert featuring San Francisco’s Rhythm & Blues legends, the 13-piece Zasu Pitts Memorial Orchestra. Joining the “Pitts” will be local favorites Home Grown and Third Party. Go to CASA’s
website to purchase tickets: or call
