LaGrange Kiwanis Club Makes Major Contribution to CASA
Recently, the LaGrange Kiwanis Club hosted a fund raiser to benefit a program to assist local-area children who are victims of abuse and neglect. That program is known as CASA, an acronym for Court Appointed Special Advocates. It services children in Henry, Oldham and Trimble counties, known as the HOT counties.
The LaGrange Kiwanis Club hosted a fish-fry at their club house at the Oldham County Fair Grounds and assumed all expenses for the food and drinks. There were raffles and auctions at the event which earned $1,500, all of which was donated to CASA. The Kiwanis membership volunteered their time to prepare and serve the food and drink which was enjoyed by well over 120 people.
“The wonderful and supportive membership of the LaGrange Kiwanis Club stood tall in support of a program that serves the needs of children,” stated Oldham County Police Chief Michael Griffin, a member of the CASA Advisory Board.
Pictured above is a combined group comprised of LaGrange Kiwanis members and CASA volunteers as they enjoyed the fish fry that raised $1500 to support CASA’s efforts.
