Thank You for Celebrating 20 Years of Helping CASA Kids!

Each spring members of our community gather to recognize Family Law CASA’s work advocating for children caught in the middle of high-risk custody conflicts in King County.

This year’s virtual celebration April 28-May 25 marked 20 years of helping CASA kids. We shared four new videos about Family Law CASA’s work to give children a voice in court. KING TV’s Angela Poe Russell introduced the program and thanked our super sponsors. Washington State Supreme Court Chief Justice Steven Gonzaléz spoke to the importance of civil legal justice for kids and families. Founding board members shared reflections on laying a strong foundation for protecting CASA kids. And longtime court appointed special advocate (CASA) volunteer Rhe Zinnecker was honored with the 2022 Community Award for her exceptional dedication.

The virtual event is our largest fundraiser for the year generating almost a quarter of our operating income. If you missed the event there is still time to donate. Your generosity will help hundreds of local children. You will give the life-changing gift of an advocate watching out for their safety and security.

Thank you for your generosity and we look forward to seeing you in-person at next year’s celebration.
