ROCKWALL, TX (March 24, 2015) On Sunday May 17, 2015, the Metro East Division of the Dallas Builders Association will host its 10th annual Cars for CASA auto show to help raise money for Lone Star CASA, Inc.
CASA is a national volunteer movement that began in the late 1970s in Seattle. Its purpose is to find community volunteers to act as a “voice in court” for abused and neglected children. The first CASA program was established in Dallas in 1980. In Texas, there are 69 local CASA programs with more than 7,000 volunteers serving 22,000 foster children. Lone Star CASA, Inc. advocates for children in Rockwall and Kaufman Counties.
Cars for CASA, which is put on annually by more than 40 volunteers, has grown to become one of the most successful auto shows in North Texas. The first event in 2005 featured 80 cars and raised $2,600. This year’s show is expected to feature 350 cars and raise more than $50,000 for Lone Star CASA.
“We’re proud to play a role in helping CASA kids rebuild their lives,” said Dave Hambley. “The Cars for CASA show is a great way to support a worthy cause and raise awareness of the Casa role in our children’s lives.”
From vintage autos to cutting-edge cars, there is always something exciting to see at Cars for CASA. Among the many cars featured at this year’s event will be a Classic Mustangs and Corvettes, several Shelby Cobra’s, Vintage Pontiac GTO’s , and many others. We will also be showing new cars and trucks from local dealerships that sponsor the event.
