Founded in 2009 by donor and volunteer, Debby Ziegler, the Friends of CASA Annual Spring Tea & Fashion Show is a community fundraiser and social event that brings together a group of like-minded friends who strive to make a difference for children in our community. It was Debbie’s desire to create a sustainable model for women to work on an event that supplemented the fundraising activities of Child Advocates combined with a social activity. The idea took off and the first Spring Tea raised $5,000. Over the years, The Friends of CASA group grew and the fundraiser has become an integral part of funding for the programs and staff at Child Advocates.
Membership in the Friends of CASA group includes volunteer CASA’s, Mentors, former Board members, business women and others. The common core value is a shared passion for children and the willingness to jump in and work together to host a sold out event that sets the bar year over year, bringing together some of the most creative table decor and fashion to hit Placer County.
The talents of this group of women are endless and includes artisans, makers, innovators, and show stoppers. This is a must attend event held in March each year.
