Full Force Foundation generously commits to be the 3rd Annual Gallery of Hope Gala’s Title Sponsor

Child Advocates San Antonio (CASA) is proud to announce Full Force Foundation as the Champion for Change title sponsor of the 3rd Annual Gallery of Hope Gala. Full Force Foundation has generously sponsored each year of our Gala, which helps CASA create awareness and expand community outreach. 

Full Force Foundation was founded by Scott and Martha Barnes.  Together they have worked with youth in our community in various capacities for the last 20 years and Martha has been committed to Child Advocates San Antonio (CASA) for over ten years. All members of the Barnes family, including extended members, get involved with Full Force Foundation events. Scott and Martha strongly believe in putting in time to each foundation endeavor.  The Foundation's specific purpose is to assist economically disadvantaged youth and youth aging out of foster care to: (a) complete high school (b) pursue post-secondary education, including college trade school; and (c) obtain and maintain employment. The Foundation will carry out its specific purpose primarily by making grants to organizations and programs that further the Foundation's mission through evidence-based practices and measurable outcomes.

Full Force Foundation, along with Investment Professionals, Inc, hosted an Art and Soul event last month where Advocates brought their CASA children to create some beautiful canvases.  You can view the pictures from that event here

The Gallery of Hope is a visual narrative of what CASA does as an organization. The intent for this project 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 occur 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.

We are so grateful for Full Force Foundation’s support as we continue to serve the abused and neglected children of Bexar County. 

The 3rd Annual Gallery of Hope Gala will be held on Thursday, October 29th, from 6:30 - 9:00pm at the Eilan Hotel Resort and Spa. 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. To see more about the Gallery and purchase tickets for the event, please visit our Gallery of Hope page for more information.
