CASA had a Wild Fun Safari at the San Antonio Zoo

On October 8, Child Advocates San Antonio (CASA) and the San Antonio Zoo hosted the Wild Fun Safari for our CASA children.  Animated Tour Guides helped the children learn all about the Animal Kingdom. As they entered the zoo with their Advocates, the kids were able to interact with the massive pythons, pet the cute ferrets, and play with the creepy tarantulas. CASA even spent time with the exotic birds in the Lory Landing and fed them the delicious nectar they go crazy for!  These animals were safely taken out of their cages so the children could directly engage and learn many fun lessons from the San Antonio Zoo.

We are so grateful to the San Antonio Zoo for providing this fun childhood experience to our children; many of whom have never gotten to experience the wonder of a zoo visit before.  CASA Advocates and the kids we serve left with so many fun memories. Thank you to all who participated in this Wild Fun Safari.

Thanks for your immense support Capital Group

On Thursday, October 15th, 2015 Child Advocates San Antonio (CASA) teamed up with Capital Group to host not only an Art & Soul with our CASA Advocates but a community service project to help clean up our CASA Offices. Capital Group is one of our generous Gallery of Hope Sponsors and they selected CASA as their charity of choice for 2015. Their volunteers helped bring a much needed makeover to our CASA storage room. Not only did their work give our storage room a facelift, the Capital Group volunteers helped set up for their very own Art and Soul.

Thank you to our Capital Group volunteers for making this a very special day for not only our CASA offices but the Advocates and children they serve.

 If your organization would like to sponsor an Art and Soul, please contact events@casa-satx.org for more information.

The 3rd Annual Gallery of Hope is Sold Out

We are excited to announce that the 3rd Annual Gallery of Hope is officially sold out.  We appreciate your support and are so thrilled that this is our biggest event yet.

This is a very unique, one of a kind fundraiser.  Our guests will experience delicious hors d’oeuvres personally crafted by the Eilan Resort, enjoy wine and cocktail offerings, listen to the great sounds of Chris Hall Trio, and experience firsthand the unveiling of this year’s Gallery of Hope pictures.  They will be entertained by KSAT’s own Ursula Pari as she auctions off six incredible live auction packages.  Guests can end the evening with s’mores, a variety of chocolate offerings, and even a cigar and/or nightcap.

The Gallery of Hope Gala is a fun way to support the amazing work that CASA Advocates do for our community.  Make sure to like us on Facebook to get updates and pictures for the Gallery of Hope!
