5K Superhero Run for CASA- On July 7, 2018, CASA will host the 8th Annual 5K Superhero Run in an effort to raise awareness about youth in foster care and how CASA is the VOICE for abused and neglected children-using citizen volunteers to advocate for them. This family-friendly event will take place at Midtown Crossing and features a 1K Kids Run, photo booth, and post-race pancake feed at Cantina Laredo.
Unsung Heroes- On September 13, 2018, CASA will host Unsung Heroes at Kaneko. The event is a dress-casual, after-hours social designed to honor those individuals who played a critical role in getting CASA for Douglas County started. Honorary chairs for the event are Kay Lynn and John Goldner. Kay Lynn Goldner has been a part of CASA since its beginning and had served as a CASA Volunteer, Board member and Service League member. CASA will pay tribute to four other individuals who have been critical to the success of the organization and a CASA youth who has benefited from having a CASA Volunteer. A short program will provide an up-close look at the life of a child in foster care, an opportunity to meet and talk with CASA Volunteers (previous and current) and a look at where CASA is headed, in the future.
