 Founded by the Junior League over 30 years ago, Friends of CASA began as a small group of dedicated women who planned and executed small fundraising events to support CASA. 

As CASA has grown, so has Friends of CASA. Today, Friends of CASA Members produce

the Holiday Luncheon, a fashion show event at the Monarch Beach Resort which raises 

over $450,000 annually. With so many dedicated volunteers, the group has organized into an even more expansive auxiliary with a Governing Board presided over by President Lori Jackson. In addition to planning exciting fundraising events, Friends of CASA members have the opportunity

to attend educational trainings and courthouse tours to learn more about the challenges facing

our foster youth. Members also participate in community impact days and volunteer hands-on 

in the community alongside other Friends of CASA members.
