The Gallery of Hope Gala
The 4th annual Gallery of Hope Gala was a major success due to supporters like you. We surpassed our goal, raising nearly $300,000, enough money to supply 300 more Advocates to the youth in the Bexar County foster system. Because of you, CASA is one step closer to providing an Advocate for every abused and neglected child in need. You can find photos from the event located on our Facebook page, linked here.
 

United Way Season is Wrapping Up
CASA has had the pleasure of speaking to more than 45 companies and organizations across San Antonio since United Way season began. We love being part of United Way and meeting the people who make it possible!
United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County helps CASA serve the abused and neglected children in Bexar County. Every donation we receive from United Way allows us to serve more children by recruiting, training, and supervising more volunteer Advocates. CASA needs your support as we strive to meet our goals for this new fiscal year. Because of United Way, we are able to continue moving towards our goal of providing an Advocate for every child who needs one.
We would like to extend our gratitude to Harland Clarke for choosing CASA as their “agency of choice,” for their 2016 campaign. 
During the home stretch, we encourage you to request a CASA speaker for your United Way campaign and/or consider designating CASA as your agency contribution.  Please contact ereise@casa-satx.org for more information! 


Fusion Fest Put CASA in the Spotlight 
San Antonio’s first Fusion Fest brought together the local art and music scenes for a good cause. Named beneficiary, CASA received 100% of funds from event admission. The event included two-stages of live music, local artists debuting unique artwork, handmade jewelry vendors and food trucks sure to satisfy. It was a great evening for a great cause! We are truly grateful for our partnership with the Fusion Fest team and look forward to future endeavors!


CASA Participated in UTSA’s Omega Delta Phi “Miss Silver Rose Pageant”
UTSA’s chapter of Omega Delta Phi has been a great partner and supporter of CASA. For a second year, CASA was invited to their largest annual event, The “Miss Silver Rose Pageant,” where the fraternity emphasized the importance of cultural awareness, diversity and inclusion. The CASA representative met with students and discussed the role we play in San Antonio. 


University Bowl Partnered with CASA for the Holidays
Local bowling alley, University Bowl, teamed up with CASA to bring smiles to our CASA kids over the holiday season. Their generous donation of more than 600 bowling vouchers, for our Advocates to enjoy with their CASA kids, as well as multiple boxes of toys will surely touch the hearts of the children we serve. The vouchers are available at the front desk for Advocate use
