Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) advocates for the best interest of abused and neglected children in the court system through trained, community volunteers’ services.
NextLink staff presented a check to CASA of Parker and Palo Pinto Counties for $1,140.00. To raise these funds, the NextLink staff was divided into seven teams. Each team picked a Monday in which they were responsible for preparing lunch. Cuisine ranged from Italian (salad and breadsticks donated by Olive Garden), to Mexican food, to hamburgers and hot dogs. Donations were accepted from those that enjoyed the delicious meals prepared by NextLink staff. Additionally, silent auctions were held to raise extra funds. Items auctioned included homemade baked goods, as well as meal and gift cards from local restaurants. A special Thank You to Applebee’s of Weatherford for donating not only gift cards but also free kids meals for the children in the CASA program.
NextLink appreciates all of the local vendors who contributed to make this fundraiser a success.
