CASA of the Tennessee Valley
Thank you for your many years of support for CASA’s annual Winter Blast event. We regret to inform you that this year’s event will be cancelled. The CASA Winter Blast has been an annual event for the last eight years and has brought in revenue of an average of $15,000 each year. This has been an event we have enjoyed bringing to the community, but as many have felt the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic we are unable to provide this event this year.
Last year, we served 98 children and were able to ensure that 62 children were thriving in safe, permanent homes. Although, COVID-19 made it challenging to recruit and for courts to operate, CASA maintained a presence for our children and remained a consistent voice for their care and safety.
There are many more children in the courts who need a voice and need a guardian angel to watch over them. Last year during 2020, there were 164 children with substantiated cases of abuse and/or neglect and of those number’s 147 remained in state custody. We have a long way to go to meet the need.
Please consider supporting our work with your donation of a minimum of $50. This is a cost of a Winter Blast ticket and your support is greatly needed. You can mail checks to: P.O. Box 176 Wartburg, TN 37887 or visit our website www.casatnvalley.org for an online donation.
We thank you for your many years of support and look forward to providing next year the best Winter Blast event!
