Playhouse raffle raises money for children who need homes
The Casa program is working with Nampa firefighters and local businesses to make a difference for children, who need a home. Organizers said their cause can truly change those children's lives forever.
The program volunteers work with abused or neglected children to find a safe permanent home for them as soon as possible.
In the Karcher Mall in Nampa, there is now a bright red playhouse. Just by entering a $5 dollar raffle, folks can help raise money for these children who need help in the court system.
Many businesses in Idaho worked with the Nampa Fire Department to build the playhouse, including Land Group and Valley Glass.
The winner of the drawing will get the playhouse, and the Nampa firefighters will come to the winner's home and install it for free.
The event is all about helping abused or neglected children in the court system, providing them a trained advocate or guardian, who has the child's best interests in mind.
Casa leaders said they're still far from their goal of raising $5,000. Organizers encourage people to stop by the Karcher Mall and buy a raffle. The last day to buy a ticket and make a difference is Dec. 12, and the drawing will take place on Dec. 13.
Casa’s for CASA event is a playhouse fundraiser, all proceeds will benefit the work of Children’s Voices/Third Judicial District CASA Program which operates in Canyon, Payette, Washington, Owyhee and Gem counties.
Proceeds will be used to continue providing services for abused and neglected children through Children’s Voices to strengthen our mission to recruit, train and support a diverse network of dedicated Guardian Ad Litem Volunteers in order to advocate for children who need homes.
