BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF CASA FOR KIDS OF GEAUGA COUNTY
EVENT DATE: Oct 18, 2014
Hi! My name is Aaron Grossman and I am one of the community "celebrities" that have been asked to be one of the Dancers in the Dancing for Kids fundraiser event. I have a professional dancer that is coaching me on a weekly basis, and I hope to put on a great performance for a great cause. Hopefully....with your help...I will win!
There are thousands of kids that enter juvenile court as victims of abuse and neglect. CASA volunteers or Court Appointed Special Advocates are volunteers who represent the "best interest" of a child when family problems such as substance abuse, mental health issues and domestic violence result in child abuse and neglect. Friends of CASA helps support victims of abuse and neglect by paying for necessities not afforded by them ---- things like summer camps, braces, athletic shoes, and pool passes. Things that go a long way to making them feel less like victims and more like every other kid.
