Tea time is right time for CASA

By
From page A12 | November 11, 2012 |

On Saturday, Sept. 22, the Yolo County Court Appointed Special Advocates program welcomed 65 ladies to an English Tea Luncheon at The Buckhorn restaurant in Winters. In the spirit of the occasion, ladies donned their teatime finery, including pearls, gloves and spectacular hats for a hat parade. Each table had a hostess who provided beautiful china and decorations.

The purpose of the tea was to spread the word about CASA in our county. The program provides advocates for approximately 50 to 70 children during a year, but there are approximately 250 children in the system who would benefit from an advocate. CASA is working hard to achieve its goal of providing every child in the system with an advocate by 2020.

The main speaker described what it means for a child to have an advocate or mentor in their life. Her mentor listened to her and raised the bar each step of the way for her until she achieved her master’s degree in social work. In her words, “a mentor is the difference between life and death, living on the streets or in a home, getting educated or living in poverty.”

Yolo County CASA would like to thank The Buckhorn restaurant, specifically Linda Rodriquez and her staff who provided a delicious lunch; the hostesses, Shannon Mariani, Bridget Mariani, Judy Peart, Donna Shera, Tracy Shera, Mary Gordon, Sue Sutton, Muvvie Marks, Vicki Murphy, Tera Paschoal, Georgia Corbett and Mary-Patricia Whelan-Miille; and all their guests.

We also would like to thank the generous individuals who donated items for our prizes, Marcia Munich of Wrap It Up for a beautiful necklace, Blue Heron Farm for decorated gourds, The Gifted Penguin for a holiday scented candle and Vicki Murphy for her honey and honey pot.

For more information about becoming an advocate, joining our Friends of CASA or helping in some way, check our website at www.yolocasa.org or call us at 530-661-4200.
