Clatsop CASA’s 21st annual fundraiser, Hands & Hearts, will be held on March 20, 2019 at the Bridgewater Bistro in Astoria, from 6pm to 9pm. This annual celebration provides the opportunity to enjoy great appetizers and competitive bidding as groups vie to win the dessert of their choice. The appetizers and desserts are specially created by notable Clatsop County chefs.
Hands & Hearts honors the 30+ volunteers who have trained to become Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA’s) and advocate on behalf of Clatsop County’s foster children. CASA volunteers are the only participants in the child welfare system who speak solely for the child’s best interest in making recommendations to the court and advocating for services.
Hands & Hearts also celebrates the many others in the community who support the continuation of this valuable work through their contributions to CASA. Clatsop CASA relies on community support to fund the recruitment, training and supervision of volunteers. Funds raised support the work of Clatsop CASA working on behalf of Clatsop children. With more than 100 children in foster care in Clatsop County today, the goal is to have at least 50 CASA’s.
A highlight of the event will be the drawing of the winning raffle ticket for a trip for 2, worth $2000, to see Hamilton in San Francisco later this summer. The prize also includes airfare, 2 nights in the Hotel Whitcomb and $150 gift certificate to the famed Foreign Cinema restaurant. Raffle tickets are $50; only 200 will be sold and are going fast.
Enjoy an evening of gourmet small bites and libations, listening to the Basin Street Jazz Ensemble and bidding for very special desserts while raising money for advocacy services for children in foster care.
Space is limited for this benefit event; only 150 tickets will be sold. Tickets are $30 each, $225 for a table of eight or $275 for a table of 10. Raffle tickets are $50. For raffle or event tickets, call 503-338-6063.
