CASA Playhouse Raffle and Pinwheels for a Purpose

April is Child Abuse Awareness/Prevention Month. CASA of Galveston County hopes to raise awareness and funds towards their goal of serving 100% of abused and neglected children in Galveston County with specialized advocacy.

CASA of Galveston County, a 501 (c)3 non-profit, recruits, trains, and supervises community volunteers that are appointed by judges to ensure that the best interest of abused and neglected children is represented in an unbiased, welldocumented, and thoughtful way to ensure these children move though the child welfare system quickly and, find safety and stability where they can live and thrive.

CASA of Galveston County hosts their 2nd Annual CASAs for CASA Playhouse Raffle from April 1 to May 13. They partnered with Bay Area Habitat for Humanity and Bay Area ReStore to build and display the two custom designed child playhouses, which will be on display during the raffle period at 1101 W. NASA Parkway in Webster. The raffle drawing will take place on May 13 at noon and winners will be notified by the end of the day.

Pinwheels for a Purpose is an opportunity to participate in a display of 300 pinwheels at The Old Galveston County Courthouse, 722 21st Street, during April for only $10. Each pinwheel represents a child that needs the voice of a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) to look out for their best interest.
