Golf Fundraiser for CASA in Atlantic and Cape May Counties is Monday
Hundreds of golfers will be teeing off on Monday for a fundraiser for CASA - Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children of Atlantic and Cape May Counties.
The GO BLUE FOR CASA Golf Tournaments will be held simultaneously at both the Linwood Country Club and Great Bay Country Club in Somers Point. Golfers will be playing to help provide advocates for children living in foster care in Atlantic ad Cape May Counties.
“It is essential to understand how vital it is for a child in foster care to have a CASA volunteer guiding and supporting them as they navigate this crisis, and the many obstacles that they face in their lives. During the past year, especially, we saw how essential a CASA volunteer is in providing advocacy, consistency and guidance to our most vulnerable children and youth. This tournament helps us raise much-need operating funds, but it also helps us stay connected to the community and encourages others to get involved,” said CASA Executive Director Lauren Crenshaw.
There is still time to get involved in Monday's tournament.

Here's a bit about what CASA does:
"Trained CASAs speak on behalf of abused and neglected children living in the foster care system and are dedicated to ensuring these children are placed in safe permanent homes as quickly as possible. Last fiscal year, CASA provided 560 abused and neglected children with an advocate and helped place 247 children in permanent homes.
