Abby’s Closet 2015

Save the date, Advocates! Abby’s Closet will take place on March 28, 2015 this year. This event is dedicated to CASA girls ages 13 and up that need a dress for a school dance, church, or any other special occasion. For more information, please contact your Supervisor.

The Big Give SA 2015

Last year, CASA participated in The Big Give SA, a 24-hour day of online giving. In just one day we were able to raise $14,000 that went directly back to the CASA program. We set the bar high, and we plan on raising even more this year to help us reach our goal of serving 1,950 Bexar County children.

This year’s Big Give SA will take place on Tuesday, May 5, 2015! Join us as we help the city raise over $2,000,000 for local non-profits. Start spreading the word by telling your friends to mark May 5th on their calendars to donate to CASA. For more information about this event please visit https://thebiggivesa.org/ or contact Marketing & PR Coordinator, Casey Gillespie at cgillespie@casa-satx.org.

Birdies for Charity

CASA has been earned one of the top 50 spots in the Valero Texas Open Birdies for Charity!  This secures CASA a place at the pro-am tournament and a chance to even have world famous golfer Phil Mickelson represent us.

Last year, Birdies for Charity raised $1.84 million for charities and schools around the community. There’s still time to donate to CASA through Birdies for Charity.
