Last week, Scott Hudson, Marketing Director of Beacon Credit Union was given the Dale H. Harris Hall of Fame award for his years of service and dedication to CASA of Central Virginia. Through Scott’s involvement with CASA, Beacon has sponsored numerous events, including the annual Ladies Night Out and our very own Beacon Golf Classic and donated time and money to CASA’s efforts.
CASA trains volunteers to work with children from abused and neglected circumstances, so that when they have to go to court, their side of the story can be heard and interpreted. With a CASA representative there to communicate their needs and issues, these children can be given a more promising future.
Beacon looks forward to working with CASA for many more wonderful events and fundraisers. For more information about CASA, click here.
In CASA’s latest newsletter, Executive Director, Allison Stronza highlighted some of her favorite parts of the National CASA conference last week. One such moment was when Wes Moore, author of New York Times bestseller “The Other Wes Moore”, spoke to the audience.
“The most important question you can ask yourself is, ‘Who will you choose to fight for?’… Every single one of us are where we are today because someone believed in us first. We are fulfilling a dream that was dreamt long before we had it for ourselves.”
At CASA, volunteers and staff fight for children who have been abused and neglected by giving them a voice in court. CASA volunteers help children navigate the child welfare system and make their fight a lot easier.
