Advocate Appreciation Dinner 2015
Our 2015 Advocate Appreciation Dinner was held on June 2 at the Blinn College Student Center in the Janice Sneed Ballroom. The theme this year was “Hit it out of the Park”. This was a time that the CASA staff and board took time out to publicly recognize each advocate for the hard work they put in each day. Each advocate was given a Polo styled CASA shirt and their very own personalized baseball trading cards. There was also a photo booth where guest could take fun pictures in front of a baseball diamond backdrop. For dinner, they feasted on traditional baseball food; hamburgers and hot dogs, of course! They even had Babe Ruth candies, sunflower seeds and peanuts to top it all off!!!

2015 TEXAS CASA CONFERENCE
If you missed the 2014 Texas CASA conference, you miss a real treat. The theme was “There’s No Place Like Home” from the Wizard of Oz movie. Last year’s conference featured three days of institutes and workshops that varied in topics around advocacy, program administration and board governance. The conference included powerful opening and closing keynote addresses from Sam Bracken, author of “My Orange Duffel Bag,” and singer, author, and National CASA spokesperson Jimmy Wayne. Both speakers focused on the power of having one dedicated person in a child’s life and how that person can make a difference.
Texas CASA’s founder and first CEO Jane Quentan Piper was honored for her dedication and passion to the CASA mission at “A Night in the Emerald City” Gala. Jane Quentan Piper received her award from former state Rep. Parker McCollough, who supported the first appropriation of funds to Texas CASA and the CASA network. The gala was also a celebration of all CASA volunteers and their life-changing work. All volunteers received a special gift from Jane Quentan Piper for their part in carrying on the CASA mission.
This year’s conference will be held in San Marcos on November 5 -7. With more than 30 workshops being offered, you are guaranteed to find many that you will enjoy and learn a tremendous amount from.
