LoneStar CASA to honor volunteer advocates April 26

Community encouraged to join CASA dinner event

(ROCKWALL, TX – April 6, 2015) This April, as we observe National Child Abuse Prevention Month and National Volunteer Week, it’s important to recommit ourselves to ending the vicious cycle of child abuse and to standing up for every child too young to speak for themselves. This month, and throughout the year, Lone Star CASA encourages the citizens of Rockwall and Kaufman counties to come together to promote awareness of the child abuse and neglect that exists in our local community.

As one of the 71 CASA programs across Texas, Lone Star CASA works to ensure all children of our two counties placed in the foster care system due to abuse or neglect can have the safe, stable and nurturing environments they need to thrive. CASA programs recruit and train everyday members of the community to speak up for the best interests of children in court to ensure that they are placed into loving, permanent homes as quickly as possible.

These extraordinary people are called CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteers, who give freely of their time and efforts in serving the children of our two counties.  On Sunday, April 26, these volunteers will be honored at a banquet to be held at the Hilton Dallas Rockwall Lakefront at The Harbor in Rockwall.  The event is being sponsored by Toyota of Rockwall and Lone Star CASA and the featured speaker will be Vickie Spriggs, CEO of Texas CASA.

Interested citizens of our two-county area can join this celebration where for just $100 per couple they can enjoy a meal of steak or chicken—and cover the cost of a meal for a volunteer, as one of the ways to show appreciation for helping our kids.  It will be a gala event with place-card reserved seating arranging to include both volunteers and supporters at every table.  Dress is business/informal and reservations must be made by April 19, 2015.

Reserve your place at one of the tables by calling 972-772-5858, or e-mailing .

Payment should be made payable to Lone Star CASA, and mailed to:

Lone Star CASA, Attn:  Angela Thomas, 108 Kenway, Rockwall, TX 75087.

Come out and help Toyota of Rockwall and Lone Star CASA thank the volunteers for Speaking Up For The Kids.
