CASA set to host fourth annual Crawfish Supper

Enjoy all you can eat crawfish, chicken strips, potatoes, corn, chips, dip and dessert.  This year’s event will also include a silent auction.

CASA is a non-profit organization that provides a voice on behalf of abused and neglected children who otherwise might have no voice.  

Delyce Palik, executive director, said that each year in Lonoke County many children are abused and neglected, and as a result, end up in foster care. 

“These children need help finding a safe, permanent home . . . something every child deserves." 

That’s where CASA comes in. Volunteers are trained to work with the juvenile court system in cases where children have been placed in foster care due to abuse, neglect or abandonment. They appear in court as advocates for the children, investigating and reporting the situation of each child so the court can make better-informed decisions about the child’s care and long term welfare.  CASA is appointed by the court at the onset of the case and remains involved with the case until a safe-permanent home is secured for the child.

“CASA volunteers are dedicated individuals who work tirelessly on behalf of children. They devote time and efforts for children who are in need,” said Palik.

Tickets for the Crawfish Supper are $25 in advance or may be purchased at the door for $30.
