CASA fundraiser selects prize winners

July 18, 2010

Russ Hilton was this year’s winner of the Casa for CASA playhouse.

But there were plenty of other attendees who walked out of Douglas County Court Appointed Special Advocates’ annual celebration with smaller houses in tow.

Saturday’s event marked the end of CASA’s annual fundraiser where tickets are sold throughout the community for a chance to win the playhouse.

This year, CASA added a new element by having community members decorate dollhouses that were then part of a silent auction Saturday night.

While Executive Director Diana Frederick didn’t have a final tally on how much was raised, she noted the turnout was one of the best she had seen in years.

CASA has already received a boost from the efforts of 12-year-old Ben Novorr, who sold root beer floats at Hy-Vee last weekend. He brought in $800 for the organization.

Saturday’s event recognized Georgia Orchard, who won the CASA volunteer award, and June Boyajian, who won the Citizen’s Review Board volunteer award.

Also announced Saturday was the winner of the people’s choice award, which had the public voting for their favorite dollhouse. This award went to Christina Gordzica and Carol Armstrong for their Asian-inspired dollhouse named Xiwang, the Chinese word for hope.
