3rd Annual Gallery of Hope

The 3rd Annual Gallery of Hope is right around the corner! The Gallery of Hope is a visual narrative of what CASA does as an organization and its intent is to create awareness and educate people about the significance and impact of the CASA Advocate. This collection of photos tells a story and illustrates the intimate relationship which occurs between Advocates and the children they serve. The Gallery exhibit helps CASA better illustrate the vital work that Advocates are doing on behalf of the children of Bexar County.

The 3rd Annual Gallery of Hope Gala will be held at the Eilan Hotel Resort and Spa on October 29th, 2015 from 6:30-9:00pm. The evening will include heavy hors d’oeurves, cocktails, entertainment, a live and silent auction, as well as the inaugural showing of the 2016 Gallery of Hope exhibit.  Our Advocates receive a special ticket discount for all of their hard work starting at $100, so be sure to spread the word! To see more about the Gallery and purchase tickets for the event, please visit our Gallery of Hope page for more information. We can’t wait to see you there!

CASA keeps up the hard work for United Way!

CASA officially finished our own internal United Way Campaign and we had 100% participation for the 6th year in a row! Since partnering with United Way in 1988, it is truly important to give back to the community that cares so much for our mission. We are so glad to continue the tradition of generous giving here at CASA and take part in such a wonderful community effort. Every donation we receive allows us to serve more children who have been removed due to abuse and neglect.

Keep an eye out for us around the community while we continue to address the needs of those we serve with our great partnership with United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County.

For more information about the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County and how you can contribute, please visit http://www.unitedwaysatx.org/

CASA and the McNay Art Museum are Partnering Up!

We are thrilled to announce an exciting partnership between CASA and the McNay. Advocates and the children they serve will benefit from all the educational events the McNay offers.  Did you know that admission to the museum and grounds is free on Thursday nights and on the first Sunday of the month (12-5 pm)? This is a great opportunity for CASA Advocates and families to take advantage of! 

We are gaining valuable support in the community from the McNay with their amazing staff and artists to provide our children with experiences they’ll never forget! CASA Advocates – don’t miss out!  Let us know what events you’d like to reserve a spot for today!
