HEB and THF Host Snacks with Santa

On Friday, December 12, Child Advocates San Antonio (CASA), HEB, and THF (Texas Healthcare Foundation) held our annual Snacks with Santa Holiday event. 

THF, CASA, and Howard Energy Partners sponsored the gifts for the children and gave them a bright holiday season.  The children had a special treat with Arendelle royalty volunteering to give them a show acting as Elsa and Anna from the Disney movie “Frozen.”  Everyone was excited and singing along with every song.

We are already looking forward to another successful Snacks with Santa event next year!

Annual CASA Annual Holiday Celebration

Last week, we held our Annual Holiday Celebration at the Plaza Club downtown. 

The Celebration was a great success! The Advocates and staff enjoyed the many raffle prizes, delicious food, and holiday cheer.  The photo booth, sponsored by our very own Yolanda Valenzuela, was a particular favorite for everyone in attendance.

Thanks to all who attended for an evening of fun.

Birdies for Charity

CASA is participating is the Valero Texas Open’s Birdies for Charity fundraising program again this year. Our goal is to raise $6,000 to help us recruit and train more volunteer Advocates. We plan to serve 1,950 children through the work of 565 volunteers this year, and your gift to Birdies for Charity will help make that possible.

Birdies for Charity is a no-cost program that gives 100% of the funds raised back to the participating organization. CASA gets back every penny that is donated. With generous incentive programs, the more we raise, the more Valero Texas Open donates to CASA. Please visit the Birdies for Charity website to donate!
