Light of Hope (LOH) is a one hour, free informational breakfast that takes place each year to bring focus to the plight of abused and neglected children in our community.  LOH is a fundraising event that not only highlights the needs of children in foster care, but also spotlights the positive impact that volunteer CASA Advocates have on the cases we are assigned to.  

 

Pulaski County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) presents the Light of Hope Breakfast each year to raise awareness and financial support to serve the children that are navigating the foster care system.  At any given time, there are between 600 and 700 children in care in Pulaski County alone.  Our CASA program served over 286 of those children last year and our sponsors and donors for the LOH event allow us to increase the number of children that will benefit from having a CASA Advocate assigned to their case.  Your support has a huge impact on the children we serve and provides them a Voice in Court through the volunteer CASA Advocates that serve them. 

 

Our next Light of Hope event will be held in October 2022.  If you are interested in attending or sponsoring the event, please email us at [email protected] and we will provide more information.

Pulaski County Friends of CASA, Inc., along with Judge Barry Hyde, are excited to host the 28th Annual Judge’s Cup CASA Classic, A Celebrity Tournament! The tournament will be held in the fall of 2022.

 

The annual Judge’s Cup CASA Classic is held to raise funds to support Pulaski County CASA. Pulaski County CASA is a non-profit, child welfare organization that trains volunteers from our community to advocate for children that have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. These volunteers are appointed by the Court to speak for the children in Court in an effort to ensure the children are in safe and permanent homes as soon as possible.

 

If you would like to sponsor the event, put together a team, or just come out and play, email us at [email protected] so we can ensure you get information as it becomes available.
