17th Anniversary Red Shoe Gala – CASA for Children of Mercer & Burlington Counties
On Saturday evening, March 24, 2018, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children of Mercer and Burlington Counties will host our 17th Anniversary Red Shoe Gala to benefit our program serving over 350 children in out-of-home placement in our combined counties. Our gala in Lawrenceville features a cocktail hour, silent and live auction, dinner and some fabulous musical entertainment. Last year’s gala was a huge success and we intend to make this year’s event even better!
We look forward to sharing our mission with the business community. Our Red Shoe Gala focuses on home because every child deserves a safe one.
As you know, CASA for Children of Mercer and Burlington Counties is an independent, non-profit organization committed to training and supervising community volunteers, appointed by the Family Court, to advocate for the best interests of children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect. In Mercer and Burlington Counties this past year, 258 volunteers advocated for 352 children. There are still over 1,000 children in our service area who did not receive a CASA volunteer to speak up for their behalf. With your help we can change that.
As a sponsor of our gala, you will receive wonderful visibility and publicity for your business. We appreciate your support to ensure more children get the services they desperately need and reach safe, stable and permanent homes. Most sponsorship levels also include tickets to the gala as well as an ad in our program book. The sponsorship form can be downloaded here, and we welcome your reply as soon as possible to include your company in our “early bird” sponsor list which accompanies our invitation in mid-January 2018.
