CASA with Community Celebrates North Country Volunteer Advocates

CASA of New Hampshire, a nonprofit that trains volunteers to advocate for children experiencing abuse and neglect, hosted a fundraising event, CASA with Community: A Night of Support, Celebration and Recognition, on Thursday, May 19, at Rek’-lis Brewing Company in Bethlehem, N.H.

Over 500 people attended the event, which celebrated and raised awareness of the advocacy work of CASA’s North Country volunteers. The evening featured live music, speakers and raffles, raising over $1,000 for CASA of New Hampshire. Rek’-lis matched the first $500 in donations and provided Rek’-lis gift cards to all North Country CASA volunteers in appreciation of their dedication and volunteer advocacy.

“Huge thanks to Rek’-lis Brewing Company for partnering with CASA of New Hampshire and giving us the opportunity to share our important message with folks in the northern part of the state. We know child abuse knows no geographic boundaries and there is a tremendous need for CASA volunteers in the region. This event at Rek’-lis helped us spread the word about the important role ordinary citizens can fill to make a difference in the life of a child victim through their own powerful advocacy,” said Marcia Sink, President and CEO of CASA of New Hampshire.

“We are thrilled to support such a truly important organization that makes an impact on the communities that we live in. The CASA volunteers do the hard work, and we are here to support that in any way that we can.  We are so happy to have CASA here with us, and look forward to continued collaborations with the organization,” added Marlaina Renton and Ian Dowling, owners of Rek’-lis.
