Party for a Purpose
Having a Party?
Give it a Purpose
Host a Party for a Purpose by adding a naturally fun element to your party through raising awareness and/or fundraising in your community.
You can help spread awareness for CASA Kane County and our mission while hosting a social event with your friends, family and connections. It’s easy to create an awareness/fundraising message and invite your friends, family and colleagues to support children, who through no fault of their own, enter Abuse/Neglect Courts within the 16th Judicial Court system.
Party for a Purpose: CASA Kane County
What is it?
“Party for A Purpose” is a way for CASA Kane County supporters, friends, volunteers, donors, and staff to get involved in our mission to end the cycle of child abuse and give children a voice in abuse and neglect courts by hosting a party to support CASA Kane County and share how everyone can make an impact by volunteering, donating or connecting.
Due to the rapid increase in cases of abuse and neglect of children, WE NEED YOU to utilize your circles of influence to help us raise funds and expand awareness to support 100% of children who are victims of abuse and neglect with a CASA/GAL volunteer.
How does it work?
You provide or choose the venue, food, drinks, entertainment, and cheer! Invite your friends, family neighbors, co-workers over for a meaningful get-together, a “Party for a Purpose.”
It could be a backyard barbeque, a quiet evening of cocktails, or an active evening of music and dancing! We will work with you to set goals for the evening and assist you in planning your event.
A CASA Kane County staff or trained CASA volunteer can also be available to attend your event and provide a brief presentation about CASA and our program. NOT required! 🙂
Suggestions to ask your guests to do one of the following to help serve the efforts of CASA Kane County and abused and neglected children in your community:
