Local residents can help foster children by attending Yolo CASA’s annual “I Am For the Child” dinner and auction on Sunday, March 24, at 5 p.m. at the El Macero Country Club.

Yolo County Court Appointed Special Advocates is a nonprofit organization that recruits and supports volunteers to act as advocates for abused and neglected children. CASAs are trained to work within the child welfare and juvenile dependency court systems and are appointed by judges to serve individual children.

With the help of a CASA volunteer, a child is half as likely to languish in the foster care system, and that much more likely to find a safe and permanent home, executive director Tracy Fauver said in a news release.

Children depend on family to keep them safe and help them thrive. When families — for whatever reason — cannot do so, children are placed in foster care. More than most, foster children need caring, dependable adults in their lives, Fauver added.

The evening begins with a hosted cocktail hour, appetizers and live music, and continues with a seated gourmet dinner with complimentary wine, dessert and coffee. Live and silent auctions will feature handcrafted jewelry, fine wines, artworks and exciting travel experiences.

For sponsorship opportunities and tickets ($75 per person), visit www.yolocasa.org or call 530-661-4200.
