CASA Holiday Luncheon Benefit
chicBuds donated products for the silent auction at the CASA Holiday Luncheon. CASA (National Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Association) of Orange County is a non-profit that trains community volunteers to serve as mentors and advocates for our community’s most severely abused, abandoned and neglected children.
Currently there are nearly 3,000 children in foster care in our county alone due to chronic or severe abuse and neglect. Unlike social workers, therapists and attorneys who juggle large caseloads and rarely have time to focus on a single child, CASA volunteers work with only one child at a time and often become the most important person in that child’s life!
For the past 15 years, CASA has held their Holiday Luncheon to raise the crucial funding needed to recruit, train and support hundreds of mentor-advocates for the coming year-making a difference for hundreds of children who are waiting for a CASA volunteer of their own.
This year’s event took place Friday, December 7th at the St. Reigs Monarch Beach with the always amazing Silent Auction, a spectacular Fashion show by leading fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, followed by Key Note Speaker, Christine Devine, Anchor of Fox 11 News with entertainment by American Idol Season 7 Top 10 Finalist Michael Johns.
Special thank you to Daryl Nelson for inviting us to be a part of the special event and bringing Fauv for the FUN!
