Children's Champion
Celebration Gala 2022

March 5, 2022

Q Center – St. Charles, IL

CASA Kane County will host its largest fundraiser of the year, our 2022 Children’s Champion Celebration Gala, “British Invasion, Luggage Sensation.” 

The inspiration for this theme came from CASA’s goal of providing each foster child we serve with a piece of luggage so that they need not carry their belongings in a trash bag. We will ensure the evening stays ‘fun’ and ‘exciting’ by allowing the artistry in the movie Cruella to further influence the night.
