CASA announces fundraiser to help children

CASA Program of Howard County Inc. will host a “celebrity” pie-in-the-face fundraiser during First Friday May 2 in downtown Kokomo. The public may call bids into the CASA office from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at 765-454-5575.

These celebrities have agreed to take two pies in face May 2 during the times listed: Councilman Bob Hayes, 5:45 p.m.; Pettit Park School Principal Tencia Helmberger, 5:55 p.m.; Councilwoman Janie Young, 6:05 p.m.; Councilman Kevin Summers, 6:15 p.m.; Councilman Mike Kennedy, 6:25 p.m.; Eastern Superintendent Dr. Tracy Caddell, 6:35 p.m.; Eastern Elementary School Principal Randy Maurer, 6:45 p.m.; Councilman Tom Miklik, 6:55 p.m.; Councilwoman Cynthia Sanders, 7:05 p.m.; Fire Chief Pat O’Neill, 7:15 p.m.; Northwestern Superintendent Dr. Ryan Snoddy, 7:25 p.m.; J.R. Dennis, WWKI Radio, 7:35 p.m.; Kokomo Superintendent Dr. Jeff Hauswald, 7:45 p.m.; Western Primary Principal Steve Arthur, 7:55 p.m.; Nick Livingston, WWKI, 8:05 p.m.; and Councilman Donnie Haworth, 8:15 p.m.

Money raised will be used to train new volunteers. A Court Appointed Special Advocate is a trained volunteer who is appointed by a judge to serve as a constant and stable advocate for abused or neglected child in court proceedings. The volunteer advocates for a child’s best interest, but does not function as a child’s attorney and does not provide direct social services to a child. Research done by the volunteers provides judges with information that helps them make informed decisions so that children can be placed in loving, permanent homes.

Volunteers must be at least 21 years old, must successfully pass background checks, and complete 32 hours of pre-service training. Call 765-454-5575 for more information on volunteering.
