Adams & Broomfield Counties, Colo. – CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Adams & Broomfield Counties hosted its annual Indulge for CASA event on Thursday, July 19th at Balistreri Vineyards and raised nearly $130,000. Funds raised will aid CASA’s mission of providing specially selected and trained community volunteers, CASA Volunteers, to advocate for abused and neglected children in the pursuit of safe and permanent homes.
The evening was hosted by former Denver Bronco, Reggie Rivers. Guests enjoyed an evening of fine wines, decadent desserts, music, and a large silent and live auction. This year’s theme, Canevale Italiano, also brought exciting performances such as fire breathers, jugglers, aerialists, and more. “The energy throughout the event was electric and to have so many individuals come together for the children in our community speaks to the incredible supporters CASA has,” shared Lindsay Lierman, CASA Executive Director.
The evening came to a close with the drawing of ‘An Italian Getaway’ that includes seven days and six nights at Villa Tereze holiday house in Italy donated by Brad and Therese Zuercher.
