CASA’s Red Shoe Gala will take place on Saturday, March 24 from 6 to 10 p.m.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children of Mercer and Burlington Counties invites the community to attend the largest fundraiser of the year to benefit children removed from their homes because of abused and neglect across Mercer and Burlington Counties. CASA’s Red Shoe Gala is set for Saturday evening, March 24, from 6 to 10 p.m. in the newly renovated Cobblestone Creek Country Club in Lawrenceville.

The Red Shoe Gala Committee is planning a fabulous evening of great music, silent auction items, delicious food and fellowship. From signed Philadelphia Eagles footballs to vacation package, there is something for everyone.

All funds benefit CASA’s mission, which is to promote and protect the best interests of abused and neglected children and ensure they reach a safe, stable and permanent home.

Tickets are $150 each and are available online: http://www.casamb.org or call CASA at (609)430–0050 for more information.

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Children of Mercer and Burlington Counties has been providing child advocacy services since December 2000. CASA trains adult volunteers to become volunteer advocates for abused and neglected children while they are in out-of-home placement. The trained volunteers are the consistent presence in a child’s life and relay factual findings to a judge in efforts to find a best solution for that child.
