Yolo Court Appointed Special Advocates will host the 14th annual Cherish-A-Child dinner and auction at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at the historic Hotel Woodland, 436 Main St. in Woodland.

The evening includes a hosted cocktail hour with appetizers and a gourmet seated dinner with complimentary wine, dessert and coffee.

This is CASA’s signature fundraising event, and a wide array of items will be up for bids. The live auction offers an overnight stay at the Villagio Inn and Spa in the Napa Valley; a three-night stay at the San Francisco Suites on Nob Hill, including dinner for two at the San Francisco Yacht Club; and a four-night stay at the exotic paradise of the Kauai Beach Resort, an oceanfront resort on Kauai’s eastern coast.

Tickets for the dinner and auction may be purchased at http://www.yolocasa.org or by phone at (530) 661-4200.

The mission of Yolo CASA is to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected foster youth within the court system. Based on the belief that every child is entitled to a safe and supportive home, CASA works through trained volunteers in collaboration with key agencies, legal counsel and community resources to serve as the child’s advocate in the Yolo County Juvenile Court System.

Yolo County children are waiting for advocates, a CASA spokeswoman says. To volunteer, call (530) 661-4200.
