Thank you for attending CASA of Marion County's annual "We Are For The Children" Luncheon!

Nearly 250 guests joined us on Thursday, December 7th at the Reed Ballroom as we share the tremendous stories of lives changed because of the work of the amazing CASAs in our community. Check out the videorecording of the luncheon, courtesy of in-kind sponsor Capital Community Media. At CASA, we uplift and inspire by creating safety and opportunity for children to thrive. We announced our first-ever CASA Volunteers of the Year: Craig and Gail Bazzi. We presented a video including testimonials from our staff, volunteers, and an adoptive parent with firsthand knowledge of the impact of a CASA in his sons' lives. Last but not least, we shared highlights from 2023 under the leadership of our new Executive Director, Vanessa Nordyke.
