Douglas County CASA will host its inaugural fundraiser, CASABlanca, at 7 p.m. July 28 at Maceli’s, 1031 N.H.
The event will include live music and casino games. Tickets, $40 in advance and $50 at the door, will include drinks, appetizers and desserts.
The organization is deviating this year from their annual CASA for CASA Playhouse giveaway, but the new event will include a People’s Choice Award honoring 20 years of the CASA playhouses.
“With funding challenges and an increase in child abuse and neglect cases in our community, we’re hoping that a new approach will yield positive results at a critical time,” said Douglas County CASA director Diana Frederick. CASA trains volunteers who serve as advocates for abused and neglected children who are under the care of the court system in Douglas County.
Organizers are currently seeking sponsors. For more information, or to vote online for the People's Choice Award, visit dccasa.org.
