CASA of the South Plains is thrilled to announce the return of its annual Casas for CASA raffle fundraiser as part of the Parade of Homes show June 9-24 at Stratford Pointe. Raffle tickets can be purchased for $5 each or 5 tickets for $20 for the opportunity to win an incredible custom-built playhouse or doghouse. Event hours are Monday through Friday from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. during the Parade of Homes show, weather permitting.

Early ticket sales start Wednesday, May 9. Tickets may be purchased online at www.casaofthesouthplains.org, from a CASA team member, or at the CASA office at 1215 Avenue J, Suite 301 during business hours, Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Tickets purchased early will be randomly entered to win a playhouse or doghouse or the buyer can hold on to their tickets and select the playhouse or doghouse of their choice at the Casas for CASA event starting Saturday, June 9. The drawing will be held on Sunday, June 24 at 5:00 p.m. Attendance is not necessary to win.

The funds raised during the event will go directly to CASA of the South Plains to help recruit, train, and support CASA Volunteers to serve as advocates for abused and neglected foster children. A CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocate, helps foster children navigate the child welfare system and ensure their needs are being met while working to help find safe, permanent homes. CASA Volunteers work alongside attorneys and social workers. They interview parents, family members, teachers, doctors, foster parents, and other adults who may have information about the child. They then make recommendations to the court about any issues or concerns relating to the child’s educational, medical, or emotional needs, and the most appropriate, permanent placement for that child.
