Invitation from CASA executive director Alberto Ramos

“Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Tulare County is thrilled to invite you to our 27th annual Once Upon A Dream Gala Dinner and Auction. Our signature event will be held on Friday, May 12, 2023, at the Visalia Convention Center.

CASA’s work truly transforms the lives of abused, abandoned, or neglected children by providing them with volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs). CASAs speak on foster children’s behalf and become a constant pillar in their life, as they navigate the foster care system with so much uncertainty and instability.

There are currently about 1,200 children in foster care in Tulare County. CASA is currently able to serve 263 of those children with program volunteers and staff. Our goal is to raise funds to recruit, screen, train, and support enough volunteers to serve all foster children in need of a CASA in our county.  We kindly ask for your support as we come together as a community to achieve this goal.

The proceeds from our Once Upon A Dream Gala account for a third of CASA’s annual budget. CASA volunteers and staff are trained to act as first-hand experts on the individual needs of these children, giving them the best possible chance at a hopeful future.

Your generous contribution will enable CASA to continue its vital work of speaking up for the innocent children who are victims of abuse and neglect—advocating for their safety and well-being by training community volunteers to represent their best interests and be their voice in court.

Enclosed you will find sponsorship opportunities and information on how you can support CASA of Tulare County and our Once Upon A Dream Gala Dinner and Auction.

We appreciate your partnership and look forward to having you join us for an enchanted evening of delicious food, friends, and opportunity to help Change A Childs Story.”
