Our 17th Anniversary Red Shoe Gala at Cobblestone Creek Country Club in Lawrenceville is planned for Saturday evening, March 24 and will feature a social hour with open bar and a Wizard of Oz-inspired cocktail, followed by a sumptuous dinner with Viennese desserts. Dance to the fabulous music of the “Franklin & Alison Band”. Guests can bid on amazing silent auction items such as makeovers from Neiman Marcus, signed sports memorabilia, tours of local breweries and wineries and much more. Each year, our CASA Gala represents a great opportunity to come together to supporting our most vulnerable children and ensure they receive essential services and reach safe permanent homes.
The Red Shoe Gala theme is reminiscent of the American classic “The Wizard of Oz.” Guests are encouraged to wear red shoes or boots that symbolize the theme, ‘There’s no place like home’. There will be a contest for the funkiest, most glamorous, and most original red foot wear. Dorothy’s journey through Oz can be compared with that of a child’s life — a child who faces an uncertain fate. As in “The Wizard of Oz,” the characters of the Tin Man, Lion and Scarecrow each play a role in getting Dorothy home safely. CASA helps to ensure that the determination of where that home will be is in the best interests of the child.
