As a result of Whiskey Wednesdays Round 9: Pappy Palooza, Give 270 was able to donate $85,000 to CASA of the Heartland, a non-profit child advocacy organization based in Elizabethtown, Ky., that serves all of Hardin County, LaRue County, and Fort Knox. CASA recruits, trains, and supports a network of volunteers, who are court-appointed to act as advocates for abused and neglected children under the protection of the County Family Court system.
“We were hopeful that this raffle would help us generate funds for CASA, but we were blown away by the generosity of the community and Give 270,” said CASA of the Heartland Executive Director Michelle Kail. “This donation will allow us to continue growing our organization to advocate for even more children in Hardin and LaRue counties.”
CASA of the Heartland will use the donation funds to help recruit additional volunteers and continue to support current volunteers who advocate for the most vulnerable children in the community. The organization relies on community support and partnerships to accomplish their mission each year.
