Welcome to Friends of CASA!
With new foster kids appearing on our waiting list each week, we always need help recruiting more volunteers and building our team of financial partners. In June 2009 several supporters of Child Advocates of Placer County and CASA joined together to launch our Friends of CASA Advisory Council, with the goal of expanding our volunteer base. “Friends of CASA” help us spread the word about the incredible work that our CASA program does for our community’s abused and neglected children.
Our “Friends” also host an annual Spring Tea Party to raise funds for CAPC. Since 2009 the Tea has grown from a handful of women getting together and raising a few thousand dollars for CASA, to a sold out 200 guest affair at Catta Verdera Country Club. In 2017 the Tea raised over $56,000 for our programs!
