CASA of Ventura County presents the 2nd Annual CASABlanca Pop-Up Dining Event

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Pam Knitowski - 805 389-3120 CASA of Ventura County presents the 2nd Annual CASABlanca Pop-Up Dining Event Camarillo, CA, July 7, 2014—Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Ventura County presents the 2nd Annual CASABlanca Pop-Up Dining Event, to be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 2 p.m. on the Ventura Harbor Village main lawn. Hailed as the only event of its kind in Ventura County, over 500 Ventura County community members are expected to “pop-up” to raise awareness and funds to benefit CASA of Ventura County. This year’s Pop-Up dining theme is “A Magical Dining Experience by the Sea.” Guests are encouraged to bring their own elegant table “scapes” and place settings, with prizes going to the most creative table decorations and best dressed. Guests may bring their own inspired meal and libations of choice, or pre-order dinners from participating Harbor restaurants. “Our goal is to make people aware that each child in the foster care system deserves to have his or her own Advocate,” explained Teresa Romney, Chair of the Board of CASA of Ventura County. “The Advocate is the one constant adult presence in the child’s life who will stay with the child until she can be returned to a safe, permanent home.” Last year 150 Advocates helped 200 of Ventura County’s neediest children, but there are still 1,000 others who need an Advocate. The purpose of CASABlanca is to raise awareness and funds to support the program. Last year’s event raised nearly $25,000 for CASA of Ventura County. CASA is a not- for-profit organization which recruits, screens and trains community volunteers who become court-appointed advocates for a foster child. For every $1,600 that CASA raises, one child could be provided with a trained advocate to help her through what can be a frightening and confusing time. For more information about the 2nd Annual CASABlanca Pop-Up Dining Event and for information about CASA of Ventura County, go to www.casaofventuracounty.org or call Pam Knitowski at (805) 389-3120.
