Founded by the Junior League over 25 years ago, Friends of CASA began as small group of dedicated

women who planned and executed small fundraising events to support CASA. As CASA has grown, so have the Friends of CASA.  Today the Friends of CASA Members produce the Holiday Luncheon, a fashion show event at

St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort which raises over $300,000 annually.  With so many dedicated volunteers, the group has organized into an even more expansive auxiliary with a Governing Board presided over

by President Jaynine Warner.  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.
