CASA of Jefferson and Gilpin Counties (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is hosting A Night for CASA, its largest fundraiser, Sept. 29 at the Arvada Center for the Performing Arts, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., Arvada, starting at 6 p.m.

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.

“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.
