CASA Foundation’s mission is to support the needs of abused and neglected children in Clark County’s foster care system by providing clothing, tutoring, school supplies, scholarships and more.  The Clark County CASA Foundation supports the CASA program, which provides judge appointed volunteers to serve as advocates for neglected children to ensure they do not get lost in the legal and social services system.
 
Mayors Carolyn and Oscar Goodman will be recognized as CASA Foundation’s Child Advocates of the Year for their longstanding contributions to the CASA program and the community.
 
“For years Mayors Carolyn and Oscar Goodman have been powerful advocates for neglected children in foster care,” said Laura Norton, president of CASA Foundation.  “As some of Las Vegas’ most prominent leaders Carolyn and Oscar Goodman are very deserving of this recognition and we are proud to award them with this honor.”
 
“We are honored and incredibly grateful to be recognized by CASA as Child Advocates of the Year,” said Mayor Carolyn Goodman.  “With more than 3,000 neglected children in Clark County we thoroughly stand behind all of CASA’s initiatives in providing powerful advocates for children who are in need of a strong voice.”
 
Previous recipients of CASA Foundation’s Child Advocate of the year include Dave Courvoisier, Carol Kirshman, The Alterwitz family and Dr. Miriam Adelson.
 
The 21st Annual Child Advocacy Recognition Dinner is a community event and tickets are $200 per person.  Corporate sponsorships are also available and tables of 10 are $1,800.  All proceeds raised benefit CASA Foundation’s programs and initiatives designed to assist with the needs of foster care children and give them a voice on their journey to a permanent home.  To reserve a seat, make a donation or for more information, visit http://www.casafoundationlv.org/ or call (702) 588.CASA (2272).
