CASA of Tarrant County 2nd Annual Pull For Kids Clay Shoot
May 18, 2018 at Alpine Shooting Range in Fort Worth, TX
Did you know that Tarrant County has the 3rd highest number of confirmed cases of child abuse and neglect in Texas? In 2017, there were 5,630 confirmed child abuse victims in Tarrant County, a 9% increase from 2016. These abused and neglected children are the most vulnerable members of our society, but CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Tarrant County, which has 400 active volunteers, works to find these children permanent homes and better environments. CASA volunteers provide a voice for the defenseless, and stand up for these children in the courtroom. They speak up for a child’s needs while they are in care, resulting in better access to community services and better educational outcomes compared to children who do not have an advocate. CASA of Tarrant County had a life-saving impact in 2017 and served a record number of 1,022 abused and neglected children. But the need is still great! Over 275 children are waiting on the voice of a CASA volunteer in court.
You can help change the trajectory of these children’s lives by attending CASA of Tarrant County’s 2nd Annual Pull for Kids Clay Shoot presented by Black Mountain. Join us at this special fundraising event on Friday, May 18, 2018 at Alpine Shooting Range in Fort Worth, TX. By supporting this event, you will give a voice to children in foster care, and ensure home is a safe place for every child! This fun event features two sessions to choose from, a raffle with exciting prizes, gun board raffles, complimentary lunch, golf carts, and branded giveaways, awards for both sessions, and a special First Responders Division and awards. Morning registration begins at 8am, with the first pull at 9am, followed by lunch, awards and raffle. The afternoon session begins at 2pm, with awards to follow.
