TERRE HAUTE -- The first CASA Kids Gala will take place from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., July 24, at the First Financial Forest Park, 4856 Mill Dam Rd., Terre Haute.
A barbecue will take place in addition to a silent auction and free games for children. Entertainment will also be provided.
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) are specially trained volunteers who advocate for children who find themselves meandering through the juvenile court system due to no fault of their own, but because they have suffered abuse or neglect from a caregiver.
The CASA Kids Board raises, manages and distributes funds to children for services and items they can't get through any other source.
