CASA’s 9th Annual Breakfast of Champions

CASA held its 9th Annual Breakfast of Champions at the San Antonio Country Club on May 23rd 2017.

This invitation only breakfast allows CASA to spread awareness to our community and pledge their financial support over multiple years to help us provide Advocates for the victims of child abuse and neglect. With over 5,000 children in the foster system, this event gives us an opportunity to provide a voice for those who do not have the ability to speak up for themselves in a convoluted process. Without an Advocate, these abused children are more likely to fall through the cracks of an overburdened system - the Breakfast of Champions helps us reach our most vulnerable population, victims of abuse and neglect, with a CASA Advocate.

Our attendees listened to a heartfelt testimonial from Nico La Hood District Attorney. This year’s program theme was how an “Advocates Impacts on the Rights of a Child”. Advocate Rebekah Hughes-Murphy guided us through the right of a child to be loved and cared for. Advocate Margaret Cowen took guided us of a child’s right to Health care. Advocate Tom Nolan guided us to a child’s right to having an identity. Lastly, Advocate Peggy Peterson gave her heart warm testimony and guided us to a child’s right to be a child, each of these Advocates testified to the positive impacts and helped make our Breakfast of Champions an even greater success.

The 9th Annual Breakfast of Champions brought us closer to providing an Advocate for every child who needs one in our community. We could not successfully accomplish our mission without the community supporters, Advocates, and all those that attending this year’s Breakfast. CASA would like to specially thank Valero for signing up to be this year’s Title Sponsor – their support is crucial to our successes and we cannot thank them enough for their generosity!

Thank you so much for those who pledged their support for CASA and all of those who attended! This year was one of our most successful Breakfast of Champions yet.
