Event description
A Whimsical Evening in support of CASA of Cook County and the children we serve.

About this Event

All are welcome the the CASA of Cook County Fall Gala on Wednesday, October 23, from 6 pm to 9 pm at the Chciago Cultural Center. Come and experience a delightful evening of dinner, entertainment, awards, and a silent auction, all to support our work to advocate for children in Cook County foster care.

For 33 years, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Cook County has been providing a voice in the courtroom for children who have experienced abuse and neglect. As the only nonprofit in Chicago that actively trains, supports, and supervises court appointed special advocates, CASA of Cook County equips everyday citizens with the skills necessary to advocate on behalf of one child or one set of siblings. Advocates research cases and communicate critical information to judges who rely on these insights to make important decisions. Often times, CASA Advocates are the only consistent person in the children's lives.

CASA Advocates are the voice for children who are voiceless in a system that removes them from their home due to abuse and neglect they have experienced. Currently, there are 5,773 children in the foster care system in Cook County. These children range in ages from birth through 18 years. These children can be in the care of the state for days, weeks, months or years. In fact, the average time a child is in the system is over 3.5 years. During their time in foster care, children are often placed in multiple foster homes and literally have no voice in this process.

By attending the Fall Gala and supporting the work of CASA of Cook County you can help us reach every child in need of an advocate. With your support, we can ensure that no child is without a voice. Thank you!
