2018 Symposium Charity Art Auction

ASGS 2018 Art Auction Call for Donations

Each year the American Glassblowers Society picks a local charity to give back to the community in which we are holding our symposium. This year’s art auction will benefit CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of the Pikes Peak Region. Here is some information about the organization from their website (https://www.casappr.org/):

CASA of the Pikes Peak Region is an inclusive and accepting organization that is committed to serve fully all children and families in need.

Overview

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of the Pikes Peak Region is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization serving El Paso County and Teller County that trains and supervises volunteers to represent the best interests of our most vulnerable citizens – victims of child abuse, neglect, and severe domestic conflict. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court and in the community. The desired result is that children are placed into safe, loving homes where they can thrive.

We offer a variety of programs and services designed to meet the special needs of vulnerable children. Among them are the: Dependency and Neglect Program; Domestic Relations Program; Supervised Exchange and Parenting Time Program (SEPT).

CASA of the Pikes Peak Region serves approximately 1,700 children per year in all our programs, but hundreds are still waiting for volunteer advocacy.
