Indulge for CASA Raises Over $193,000 to Serve Approximately 160 Children
Adams & Broomfield Counties, Colo. – CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Adams & Broomfield Counties hosted its annual Indulge for CASA gala on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, at Balistreri Vineyards and raised more than $193,000. Funds raised will aid CASA’s mission of providing court-appointed volunteer advocacy for children and youth from the child welfare system so every child can be safe, have a permanent home, and have the opportunity to thrive.
The evening was hosted by the amazing Debbie Scheer with The Gala Team. Guests enjoyed an evening of fine wines, decadent desserts, music, and a large silent and live auction. This year’s theme, An Evening in Old Hollywood, also brought exciting performances from some incredible local talent. The night was kicked off by vocal performances from Black Iris Collective followed by a choreographed dance from Live Love Dance. “I was blown away by the energy throughout the event. It is wonderful to see so many supporters come together for the children in our community.,” shared Lindsay Salas, CASA Chief Executive Officer.
The evening came to a close with the drawing of raffle prize, ‘A Relaxing Getaway to Los Cabos, Mexico’ that included eight days and seven nights at Villa Costa Brava in Los Cabos, Mexico. This year’s prize was graciously donated by Nick & Candace Werth.
Indulge for CASA would not have been possible without the generous support of sponsors and event partners. The organization would like to give special recognition to Platinum Sponsors, PDC Energy and Kenneth & Myra Monfort Charitable Foundation, and Diamond Sponsor, Adams County Government.
