C.A.S.A of Ventura County 25th Silver Anniversary Dinner
This evening at the Courtyard Marriott in Oxnard, CASA of Ventura County celebrated its 25th Silver Anniversary with an amazing dinner. Some of the dignitaries that attended were Appellate Court Justice Steve Perren, Retired Judge Melinda Johnson, Author Jane Alvarez, Director of BB&BS Lynne West, Oxnard Councilman Bryan MacDonald, Author Lissa Coffey, Mayor of Moorpark Janice Parvin, and Berta Steele (Founder of CASA in Ventura County). It was an honor to be asked by Andrea Visual, Project Manager of CASA Ventura County, to attend as a special guest. I want to personally thank every single CASA who has ever kindly donated their time, love, and support for these children. Your effort is making a huge difference. Being a former foster child, I truly wish that I had a CASA of my very own. The evening was educating not to mention memorable and was the most perfect way to celebrate the success of this
amazing program. Thanks for everyone for caring for children such as myself, you are truly making a difference in the lives of these children!
