Casas for CASA event at Market Street starts Friday, 98th & Quaker
Provided by CASA of the South Plains
Lubbock, Texas – Casas for CASA presented by Market Street will be hosted at 4205 98th Street (98th & Quaker) Friday, April 21 through Wednesday, May 31! Anyone and everyone can purchase raffle tickets for the opportunity to win a $3,500 Mastercard gift card, or a custom-built playhouse, doghouse, or storage building donated by local community members.
“Casas for CASA has been a community favorite for over 15 years now. Every year we are so thankful for how the wonderful people in our community rally around CASA to support the most vulnerable children in our community,” said Jaclyn Morris, Executive Director of CASA of the South Plains. “This year we need to raise over $55,000 during this event, and we know we can count on our community to make it happen! Together we can leave a legacy of love for these children.”
100 percent of the funds raised during Casas for CASA stay right here in Lubbock and the five surrounding counties served by CASA of the South Plains. This event enables CASA to continue to inspire, educate, and empower Volunteers to advocate for more children in foster care. A CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocate, helps children in foster care navigate the child welfare system while working to ensure their needs are being met and advocating to find them a safe, permanent home. Currently, there are over 500 children waiting on a CASA Volunteer Advocate.
Raffle tickets may be purchased anytime online at www.casaofthesouthplains.org or at the Market Street event location at 98th & Quaker, on Thursdays and Fridays from 4p.m. – 7p.m., Saturdays 10a.m. – 6p.m., and Sundays from 1p.m. – 5p.m. Raffle tickets are $5 each, or 5 tickets for $20, 15 tickets for $50, or 40 tickets for $100. The drawing will be held Wednesday, May 31 at 5:00 PM. Attendance is not necessary to win.
CASA will also be hosting special events on Saturdays during Casas for CASA. Lubbock High School Football Team and Pom Squad will be kicking off the first Special Event Saturday, April 22 at 10 a.m. The entire community is encouraged to come out and enjoy the festivities!
