It's time for CASA of Marion County's annual "We Are For The Children" Luncheon!


Join us 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.  At CASA's luncheon, we uplift and inspire by showing our audience how CASA creates safety and opportunity for children to thrive. We will announce our first-ever CASA Volunteer of the Year. We will present a video including testimonials from our staff, volunteers, and a foster parent with firsthand knowledge of the impact of a CASA in his son's life.

Another new feature for this year's luncheon is a focus on mental health. The pandemic took a toll on all children's behavioral health, and foster care children were hit particularly hard. Children who enter foster care do so as a result of exposure to sexual abuse, neglect, substance abuse, domestic violence, criminal activity by their caregivers, and other traumatizing experiences. CASA breaks the cycle of trauma by advocating for children's well-being and safety.

Last but not least, we will share highlights from 2023 under the leadership of our new Executive Director, Vanessa Nordyke. 

Do you want to sponsor the luncheon? Sponsorship levels start at $500.
