18-hole golf scramble to support CASA
News from CASA
POLSON — CASA of Lake and Sanders counties is holding its 9th Annual Golf Scramble on Saturday, April 25. This is their first major fundraiser of the year and they are hoping to raise $20,000.
Area residents are encouraged to sign up a team of four players and to submit their registration by noon, Friday, April 24. The four-person golf scramble begins with breakfast at 8 a.m., a shotgun start at 10 a.m. and features a Calloway scoring system. Gift basket raffles and a 50/50 drawing will also take place.
For tournament information, and to register, contact Cameron at (406) 883-8230, at the Polson Bay Golf Course.
The money raised from the Golf Scramble will be used to fund investigations of cases involving abused and neglected children, to support the administration of our program, and to provide on-going training and supervision for our wonderful volunteers.
CASAs are Court Appointed Special Advocates who represent children who have been subject to abuse and neglect. Advocates need not be attorneys, just have a desire to help and a love of children. Our local CASA works with more than 50 children who have been removed from their homes, an increase of more than 100 percent over the last year. Abused and neglected children need a voice. The CASA volunteers help give them that voice, and help ensure that these children are placed in safe, permanent homes where they can thrive.
To become involved with CASA call Kelly Bishop at (406) 220-3021.
