CASA of West Texas News and Events
Join CASA of West Texas and Midland Kappa Alpha Theta Alumnae Chapter for the Power of One Luncheon & Children's Style Show to benefit CASA of West Texas. This event is a celebration of the power one person has to positively change the life of a child in need.
You won't want to miss our guest speaker, Victoria Rowell! The actress, author, and advocate was raised in foster care for the first 18 years of her life. The love, guidance, and support of her foster families instilled in her the confidence and drive to succeed. Rowell tells the inspirational story of her rise out of the foster care system through the stories of the incredible women who each lifted her up in different ways in her memoir, The Women Who Raised Me. You won't want to miss her impactful story!
Spring signals new beginning full of hope! Enjoy spring/summer collection by Dillard's, modeled by local children and teens. Guests will have a unique opportunity to help local foster children in West Texas. Get there early to see the amazing silent auction items--bidding begins at 11:00 am.
By sponsoring this event, you help provide a powerful voice for a child in foster care---you give them a CASA volunteer. Without a CASA and without your support, these children are forced to navigate through an overburdened child welfare system that is hard pressed to meet their needs. Without a CASA, they can easily be re-abused or neglected in foster care or be returned to an unsafe home. CASA volunteers fight for the child's right to grow up in a safe, permanent home. CASA of West Texas served 481 foster children in seven West Texas counties last year, about 95% of the children in foster care in our seven county service area. Help us serve 100%. Every child in care deserves a powerful voice. Be that voice for foster children by sponsoring this event!
