Two recent fundraising events supported Capital Area Court Appointed Special Advocate Association, a nonprofit organization that trains community volunteers to speak for abused and neglected children in need of safe, permanent homes.

Kappa Alpha Theta at LSU hosted its annual KATfish for CASA fundraiser March 27 at the sorority house on LSU’s campus.

The event included a fried catfish dinner catered by All Star Catering, music by The Dulac Smack, a silent auction and door prizes.

Kappa Alpha Theta Chief Marketing Officer Sarah Soulier said more than 800 guests and 43 sponsors raised more than $18,000 to support CASA.

The fourth annual Terracon Golf Benefit for CASA was held March 30 at the University Club. The four-person scramble attracted more than 70 golfers and raised more than $11,000 to benefit CASA.

CASA thanked Kappa Alpha Theta and Terracon for their continued support.

These fundraising events enable CASA to continue providing a trained volunteer advocate for every child who needs one in East Baton Rouge Parish, a news release said.
