The Dallas CASA Children’s Council, founded in 2006, is the principal volunteer support group for Dallas CASA. The Children’s Council raises funds through special events and promotes community awareness about the needs of the children Dallas CASA serves and the transformational effect a loving, dedicated CASA volunteer advocate has on these children’s lives.
Children’s Council members have the opportunity to support and volunteer for Dallas CASA fundraising events. Members also participate in other activities that recognize the work of Dallas CASA volunteer advocates, such as the annual Volunteer Appreciation party, Holiday Gift Card party and the Volunteer Holiday Party.
As a member of the Children’s Council, you will enjoy a variety of social, volunteer and education opportunities. Membership benefits include:
- Invitations to Dallas CASA events and social programs, including the annual Cherish the Children luncheon, Champion of Children Award Dinner and the Holiday Party.
- Volunteer opportunities for special events, including the Comerica Prom Dress Drive, Cherish the Children luncheon, Parade of Playhouses at NorthPark Center and National Adoption Day.
