CASA of Jefferson and Gilpin Counties (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is looking for new auction items for A Night for CASA, its largest fundraiser, set for Sept. 29 at the Arvada Center for the Performing Arts. Donations of new items are due by July 31.

The event will include a sit-down dinner and the live and silent auctions. Auction items will include date nights, weekend getaways, family outings, dining experiences and sporting events.

All funds raised will help abused and neglected children in the Jefferson and Gilpin county court systems.

More than 50,000 reports of child abuse and neglect are filed in Colorado every year. CASA works to give these children hope for a better future through their community programs. The more than 200 CASA advocates help serve as a voice for these children.

“CASA has positively influenced more than 3,000 children through the community’s gracious donations,” said Leah Varnell, executive director for CASA of Jefferson and Gilpin Counties.

Sponsorships at various levels are also available.
