The 39th Annual Theta BBQ featuring some of Nashville's finest BBQ and a special performance by the sophomore pledge class! Vanderbilt University's Kappa Alpha Theta is proud to host multiple events a year to fundraise for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). CASA mentors and speaks for the 170,000 abused and neglected children who have been temporarily placed under the supervision of the court system for their own safety. CASA pairs individual children with trained volunteers who represent them in court and support them through an arduous court process, ensuring that each child will grow up in a healthy, safe, and loving environment. The funds raised at this event will be used by CASA to recruit, train and support volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) to act as friends, mentors and advocates on behalf of children who are in the foster care system!
