Joe DeStaffany of Conrad won the CASA’S 4 CASA playhouse, raffled off over Whoop-Up Days.
The playhouse was raffled as a fundraiser for the Front Range CASA/GAL program. He bought the ticket in his granddaughter’s name.
Front Range CASA/GAL is a non-profit organization that works for the abused and neglected children in Pondera, Toole, Teton and Glacier counties. The program is expanding. Currently there are four trained volunteers. The end of June an additional five volunteers will begin the training program.
The training program consists of 30 hours of mandatory training. Kiersta Sullivan, Executive Director of Front Range, says that the volunteers are from several different counties, helping to expand the program. “We rely on volunteers and donations to make our program a success,” said Sullivan, “and so far we have been very fortunate.”
If becoming a volunteer or making a donation to the program is something you would be interested in, contact Sullivan at 576-7041.
Right now, the organization is working on fundraising and that is always a challenge. “It is amazing to see the generosity of people in these tough economic times, said Sullivan.
