CASA Kane County Celebrates 35th Anniversary

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) Kane County will host a 35th Anniversary and Grand Re-Opening of the Grow a Healthy Child Garden Event on Wednesday, July 19th from 5-6pm.


CASA will be joined by all Chambers across Kane County, Elected Officials, Staff, Board Members and Volunteers for this monumental Ribbon Cutting on Wednesday, July 19th at 5pm in the Child Garden behind the Courthouse at 100 S. Third Street, Suite 430, Geneva, IL 60134. This ribbon cutting will kick off the Grow a Healthy Child Garden Grand Re-Opening and celebrate CASA Kane County’s 35 years of advocacy and service for the children in foster care.  All members of the community are invited. Sweet treats will be provided.

Last fall, an accident involving a car resulted in a great deal of damage in the garden, including displacement of the beautiful little girl statue. CASA is thrilled to announce repairs are almost complete and our precious girl has returned!

35th Anniversary

In honor of the thousands of children we have served over 35 years, we encourage you to become a monthly donor with a recurring $35 gift or make a one-time gift of $35. A gift of $35 per month will provide sustainability in supporting every child that comes into foster care with the essentials they need, along with a trusted CASA Volunteer, until a safe permanent home is found. Your monthly gift allows us to consistently rely on funding so we can continue to Change every Child’s Story for many years to come!
All members of the public are invited to donate $35 of 35 Years as a one time or monthly giving opportunity here:  https://casakaneco.harnessgiving.org/campaigns/10978
