CASA Celebration of Children Black & White Ball


CASA of Orange County cordially invites you to make a difference in the life of a child by joining them for a night of entertainment, fun, and awareness. Join the CASA Celebration of Children Black & White Ball on Saturday, April 27 from 5 to midnight at the Hotel Irvine.

CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates of Orange County, is a privately-funded non-profit organization that serves severely abused, neglected and abandoned children. These services are provided by dedicated, trained volunteers who advocate for and mentor these children, representing their best interests in the courtroom and other settings. 

Over the years, CASA Celebration of Children has raised several million dollars for CASA's Mentor-Advocate Program. This would not be possible without the generous donations of many caring indviduals, families, and companies. Because tickets sales and sponsors cover the majority of event costs, 85% of net event proceeds directly benefit CASA's mentoring and advocacy program for abused kids. 

Black and white attire and black tie optional.

For more information contact Katie Dougherty at CASA of Orange County: 714.619.5140 or

Hotel Irvine is at 17900 Jamboree Road in Irvine.
