Registration is underway for the fourth annual Terracon Golf Benefit for the Capital Area Court Appointed Special Advocates Association.

The four-person scramble will be March 30 at the University Club of Baton Rouge, 15333 Memorial Tower Drive.

Proceeds from the golf tournament support Capital Area Court Appointed Special Advocates Association, a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains and supervises community volunteers who advocate on behalf of abused and neglected youth living in foster care to help them reach safe, permanent homes, a news release from CASA said.

The fundraiser enables the organization to continue providing a CASA volunteer for every child in East Baton Rouge Parish who needs one, the release said.

The event is sponsored by Terracon, an engineering consulting firm specializing in environmental, geotechnical and construction materials testing services. The 2014 golf tournament raised about $6,000 to support CASA’s advocacy efforts, the release said.

To register for the tournament, call Lisa Smith, of Terracon, at (225) 239-2644 or email For information about CASA, visit
