CASA’s 5th Annual Breakfast of Champions

On March 27, CASA held its 5th Annual Breakfast of Champions at the San Antonio Country Club.  The purpose of this event is to inform and inspire attendees to donate operational funds for our program.  CASA Advocates, staff, ambassadors and other community partners who are passionate about our mission invite their contacts to attend the event in efforts generating funds and helping CASA serve more children entering State protective custody. Thank you to all who attended, as well as to the Advocates and CASA youth who shared their stories with guests at this event.

Langmore Photography

Volunteer Diane Hill

The Langmore philosophy reflects a desire to capture the soul of the subject. It seeks to reveal intimate relationships between brothers and sisters, children and parents, mothers and newborns. It searches for individuals unaffected.

This philosophy is what led Will Langmore to CASA. As the children’s cases come to an end and adoptions are finalized or reunifications occur, Will provides the opportunity for the families and advocates to gather together to capture the joy of the occasion. Each photo highlights the celebration of a successful outcome and the hope for a brighter future.

Every family receives a donated photograph as a heartfelt keepsake. Additionally, a photograph of the Advocate and children is given to CASA as a thank you for the service we provide to the abused and neglected children in Bexar County.

Speaker’s Bureau

The CASA Speaker's Bureau is made up of Advocates who share their stories of volunteering with others in the community.  This is a great opportunity to present at events throughout the year and continue giving back to our organization.  You are invited to participate in a brownbag session where you will learn tips on crafting your story to ensure it is informative, insightful and inspirational.  Our next Speaker’s Bureau training will be held at CASA on April 17, 2013 from 6-7:30 pm.  We are fortunate to have a consultant from our corporate partner, Valero Energy Corporation, present at this particular session to provide feedback and pointers.  Please contact Christina Higgs at chiggs@casa-satx.org if you are interested in participating.
