The latest news and information from Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Fresno and Madera Counties. 

Message from the Executive Director
 
Dear Friends,
 
I would like to express our gratitude to the sponsors, donors, guests and volunteers who participated in our 18th Annual Crab Feed fundraiser held in September. It has been exciting to watch the Crab Feed grow year over year and become our signature fundraising event. This year we had our largest guest attendance to date and were able to raise a record amount of money to benefit the mission of CASA.
 
We look forward to seeing you all again next year. 

Gratefully,
 
Nathan Lee, Executive Director.

CASA Crab Feed 

 
Our 18th Annual Crab Feed Fundraiser took place on Friday, September 16th with a crowd of over 700 guests in attendance. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, donors, guests and volunteers we raised over $173,000 in support of CASA.
 
The funds from Crab Feed go directly to supporting the mission of CASA in recruiting, training and supporting volunteers to advocate for youth in foster care.
