Chocolate festival to raise money for CASA

Posted by wlpo on April 7, 2014

Hundreds of children get caught up in legal cases. When this happens in La Salle County a court appointed special advocate is there to represent the child’s best interest in court. You can help make sure La Salle County CASA can continue to train these volunteers during their big annual fundraiser.

“Nothing’s Sweeter than a Child” Chocolate Festival and Silent Auction is Sunday at Celebrations 150.

Judy Terando with CASA says they have about 30 volunteers.  The volunteers handle on case at a time and report to the judge.

The festival is from 1-4pm. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children five and younger. Terando says families are encouraged to attend. For the price of admission you can sample all of the chocolates including brownies and cupcakes.

Learn more about CASA by listening to an interview that’s up at the WLPO AM and FM news page.
