Beaverton, OR. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children of Multnomah, Washington, and Columbia Counties hosted its 7th Annual Bowl for CASA at King Pins Beaverton on June 1st. The event raised $40,700 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.
All proceeds raised from the event directly impact our ability to serve more children with a CASA volunteer. A CASA passionately and tirelessly works to guide a child through the trauma of the court system. Oregon law gives CASAs unusual authority as a ‘party to the case’ so that they are able to ensure that the system does not ignore a child’s needs and that the judge has the information to act in the child’s best interests. A CASA is trained to work with judges, social workers, teachers, foster parents, and family members to ensure that the safety and well-being of the child is front and center.
for CASA’s programs!! Thank you so much to our wonderful Ambassador Board for organizing this fun event, along with all of our sponsors and everyone who participated. We couldn’t do what we do without you!
Wanted to support but didn’t get to it in time? No worries! We are accepting additional donations through the end of June:
