CASA Donor Reception at Lüke!

To show our immense appreciation for our supporters, CASA held a Donor Reception at Lüke on July 28th.

CASA’s generous contributors enjoyed delicious food created by world renowned Chef John Besh. Board President Kevin Moore and CEO Rick Cooke shared our accomplishments from our recently completed fiscal year.  We served 2,103 children with 662 Advocates!  This number is particularly important because it signifies the largest number of children served by CASA thus far.  This means that 2,103 more children succeeded in school, got the necessary therapeutic and medical services to heal, and found a safe and permanent home.  It means that 2,103 children have the chance for a safe and happy future.  Without our donors and community supporters, CASA would not be able to improve the lives of abused and neglected children here in Bexar County.

This is an exciting accomplishment – but we know that there are so many more children that deserve the hope a CASA Advocate can offer.  One of the ways in which we fund our programs is by organizing several events every year.  One of these events, Gallery of Hope Gala, will take place on Thursday, November 10, 2016 at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.  The Gallery of Hope Gala brings together the champions of our cause―in a vibrant place awash with beautiful sound and enthralling imagery, showcasing our community impact.  Our goal for the event is to generate additional revenue to serve 2,500 children in this next fiscal year.


CEO Rick Cooke recognized our current Gallery of Hope sponsors last night. Our sponsors are essential to making the event a success so we can serve more children.  A special thanks to Hilmy (our print sponsor for the 4th year), Alterman, Inc., Employer Flexible, i*financial, and Jerry and Jan McVicker.  If you are interested in the great opportunities sponsorship can bring you, feel free to learn more here.


We are so thankful for our donors’ financial support which enables CASA to provide a better life for thousands of children in our community.  Thank you to everyone who joined us at the event.  We are so grateful for your presence and ongoing support of our agency and the children we serve.
