Love Austin CASA Fundraiser 2016

Posted on Monday, October 31st, 2016 at 4:45pm.

At REILLY, REALTORS®, we are proud to give back to the Austin community through our Love Austin Initiative. This holiday season, we are hosting a donation drive benefiting CASA of Williamson County. This organization provides a voice in the courtroom for children within the foster care system. We hope you will help us support CASA by participating in our donation drive co-sponsored by Wortham Insurance.

CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocate) is a non-profit, national organization founded in 1977 by Judge David Sookup, who saw a need for dedicated representatives for children in the foster care system. There are 1,000 active CASA programs across the country and 72 within the state of Texas alone. CASA volunteers are highly-trained advocates appointed by judges to look out for the best interests of children and help them find safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible. Each volunteer is responsible for one child or one group of siblings so they can focus their attention on each unique case and provide a stable presence in their lives as they navigate the foster care system.

In addition to collecting donations, we will be hosting a benefit and soiree at Foxhole Culinary Tavern on November 17th from 7 pm - 10 pm. Come out and enjoy great food, drinks, live music by John Lockhart, and a silent auction to raise money for CASA. We are also collecting toys and gifts suitable for young children to donate to CASA. If you would like to donate a toy or gift, please contact our office at 512-600-1800, or any of our agents, and we will arrange to pick up your items before November 17th. If you prefer to donate monetarily, please use this link: https://www.crowdrise.com/reillyrealtors.
