I’m writing you today with 1 simple request. This Fall, I’m supporting Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Kern County as a Shoe Guy at their annual “Wine, Women and Shoes” fundraiser. We Shoe Guys are doing our part to raise funds for CASA, and I’d like to ask for your help to get me to my $1,500 fundraising goal.
Support CASA of Kern County
Abby and I are big supporters of CASA and the amazing work they do in our community. CASA recruits, screens, trains and supervises volunteers who speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children whose lives are supervised by the juvenile dependency court. In simpler terms, CASAs are amazing people who work tirelessly and fearlessly to help kids in the foster system find their forever families. It’s amazing work, and work that needs our support!
CASA currently serves 196 children, but the unfortunate reality is there are still more waiting for their advocate. It costs about $3,400 per year to screen, train and supervise each advocate. That’s why fundraising opportunities like Wine, Women and Shoes are so important. Every dollar we raise goes to improve abused and neglected children’s lives.
I’ve already written a novel, so I’m going to wrap things up momentarily. Would you mind giving $10, $25, $100 or $1,000? On a personal note, I can’t forget mentioning that every dollar you donate through my campaign for CASA helps me towards being named the “King of Sole” at our event on October 3, 2015. If crowned, I promise there will be plenty of photos to be shared.
Thanks for your consideration, and I hope I can count on you as a supporter.
P.S. If you’re interested in attending Wine, Women and Shoes, you can find more information on the event website.
