CASA golf tourney set for Saturday
Friends of Court Appointed Special Advocate, known as CASA, is preparing to host its annual golf tournament Saturday, Aug. 10, to benefit foster children in Clallam County.
The tournament at Sunland Golf and Country Club, 109 Hilltop Drive, Sequim, starting at 9 a.m.
Entry fee is $50 per player and $25 for Sunland members. The fee includes greens fees, prizes, hot dogs and more. It costs $15 per rider for carts.
CASA volunteers advocate for children in dependency court.
Valerie Brooks, CASA coordinator for Clallam County, said the tournament is run by CASA and community volunteers and that the money raised goes straight to foster children, not the program. This year the goal is to raise $12,000-$15,000, she said.
“This is the only fundraiser the group does and benefits only local foster children,” Brooks said.
