Calling All Artists…Help Support CASA!

Adams and Broomfield Counties, CO – CASA of Adams and Broomfield Counties is calling on artists to help support CASA through their Indulge for CASA art contest.

Indulge for CASA is a fundraising event that provides the community with a chance to enjoy wine, hors d’ oeuvres and decadent desserts and the opportunity to participate in a live and silent auction to help support the work that CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Adams and Broomfield Counties does with abused and neglected children. The event will be held at Balistreri Vineyards located at 1946 East 66th Avenue in Denver on July 22 from 6 -10 pm. Tickets will go on sale in May.

CASA is in search of artists to create an “Indulge for CASA” image on an 11x17 canvass to donate to the organization. All donated art pieces will be judged in the Indulge for CASA art contest that will take place on April 28 at 3 Margaritas located at The Orchard Town Center at 144th & I-25 where artwork will be displayed during the organization’s Dining Out for CASA fundraiser. The community is invited to dine out at 3 Margaritas that day and vote for their favorite art piece. CASA will receive 15% of total food sales from the day. Art entries will also be displayed at the CASA Classic Golf Tournament that will be held on May 19 at Hyland Hills Golf Course.

The winning art piece will be used in all marketing materials as the official 2010 Indulge for CASA Artwork and will be auctioned off at the Indulge for CASA event, with proceeds to benefit CASA. The winning artist will also receive four tickets to the Indulge for CASA Event and the opportunity to autograph printed replicas of their artwork on that evening. If you are interested in participating, please visit and click on the “Indulge for CASA” link or call 303.655.3927. Artwork must be received by April 23, 2010.

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Adams and Broomfield Counties is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that trains, supports and supervises community volunteers who advocate for the best interests of innocent child victims of abuse and neglect. Each year, in Adams and Broomfield Counties, there are over 1,300 children who have been physically, sexually or emotionally abused or neglected, and who are in desperate need of a caring, committed CASA Volunteer to speak up for their best interests. In Adams and Broomfield Counties , there are over 200 CASA volunteers, and we are in need of more great community members to become advocates for children. CASA conducts volunteer training classes three times a year. The next class begins in June 2010. For more information about CASA, call (303) 654-3378 or visit
