Gallery of Hope

We are excited to announce the 2016 Annual Gallery of Hope Gala will be held at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts on November 10, 2016 from 6:30-9 pm. The Gallery of Hope Gala brings together the champions of our cause―in a vibrant place awash with beautiful sound and enthralling imagery, showcasing our community impact. 

The evening will include heavy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, entertainment, a live and silent auction, as well as the inaugural showing of the 2017 Gallery of Hope exhibit.

The Gallery of Hope exhibit is a visual narrative of the hope and healing CASA provides abused and neglected children.  Through this collection of photos, we illustrate the intimate relationship that is built between the CASA Advocate and child, demonstrating how each child’s life has changed from a situation of fear and danger, to a life of hope and happiness.

Tickets are on sale now for our supporters in the community with a special rate for our Advocates!  Learn more by clicking here


Thanks to Full Force Foundation for Hosting an Art and Soul

On July 26, 2016, Full Force Foundation hosted 24 children at the IPI offices for a fun Art and Soul.  Full Force Foundation and IPI helped our kids have so much fun by helping them make geometric canvases, providing special gifts and ice cream sundaes. 

Full Force Foundation has been a long standing partner of CASA and has been the title sponsor of our Gallery of Hope for the previous three years.  We are so grateful for their support.

If you would like to sponsor your very own Art and Soul with your business or group, please contact ereise@casa-satx.org for more information.


CASA’s Donor Appreciation Event

In order to express our gratitude to our many donors and supporters, CASA held a donor reception at Lüke on July 28th.  Our President/CEO shared the results of our recently completed fiscal year and laid out a vision for our future successes.  Without our donors and community supporters, CASA would not be able to improve the lives of abused and neglected children here in Bexar County.

 

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the event.  We are so grateful for your presence and ongoing support of our agency and the children we serve.

On behalf of the children of CASA, we are so grateful for the support of Spurs Jesus!
