There’s another fund raiser coming up on September 12th.
CASA for Children of Multnomah, Washington, and Columbia Counties is partnering with Fred Meyer Jewelers to host the 23rd Annual CASA Golf Classic at Columbia Edgewater Country Club on September 12th. The tournament will raise money in support of CASA’s mission to advocate for the rights, safety, and well being of abused and neglected children who are under the protection of the courts. CASA recruits, trains, and supports hundreds of citizen volunteers who become passionate protectors and advocates for their CASA kids.
“Through the CASA Golf Classic we have achieved a great deal in the past 22 years, but there remains much more work for us to do for the many children still in need. Fred Meyer Jewelers is proud to partner with CASA and we are about making a difference for children in the Multnomah, Washington, and Columbia Counties foster care system,” said John Berglund, CASA Board member and Fred Meyer Jewelers Group Vice President of Merchandising.
Last year, the 22nd Annual CASA Golf Classic presented by Fred Meyer Jewelers, raised over $220,000! The tournament experienced its most successful year to-date. Fred Meyer Jewelers, a long-time supporter of CASA for Children, is deeply committed to giving back to its communities. In addition to supporting CASA for Children, Fred Meyer Jewelers supports nonprofits such as Jewelers for Children, The Humane Society of the United States, and Breast Cancer Research.
