Thanks to everyone who supported the 11th Annual CASA of the Coastal Bend 5K Fun Run/Walk fundraiser on April 30, the event set records both in participation – 775 – and money raised — $58,000!
The money will support CASA’s goal of making sure kids in foster homes in Nueces, San Patricio and Aransas counties get a CASA volunteer advocate. These advocates help the children find safe, permanent homes.
The Edwards Law Firm had the honor of being the title sponsor this year, which was great fun for the whole staff and me. My wife and I had a great time handing out ribbons to the children who participated in the 1K. We had 11 members of the firm who participated. One of them, Deborah Blanco, also served as a costume contest judge. The costume contest, by the way, gave away some $2,500 in donated prizes – another generous gift from the community.
We can’t wait to see everyone next year!
