The annual Christmas of Hope brunch will be held on December 13, 2009, at Castel Grisch Winery and Restaurant in Watkins Glen, N.Y., from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. All proceeds benefit CASA of the Southern Tier. Tickets are $20 per person, $10 per child, and may be purchased by calling (607) 936-CASA. Table and time reservations must be made in advance. Call (607) 535-9614.
The holiday brunch is one of our most satisfying events, people relax for an hour. They enjoy great food, a bit of wine, and have fun. Our CASA kids and volunteers deal with tough, sometimes life or death, situations on a daily basis. The brunch is a terrific way to support children who are abused and neglected in our tri-county area.
For more information or purchase tickets, call Amy Miller-Plumley at (607) 936-2272 (CASA).
CASA is a nonprofit organization founded on the belief that the health, safety, and spirit of a child should be the primary concern when families are in crisis. To that end, it is dedicated to providing every abused and neglected child in the court system with a consistent and caring advocate - a court appointed special advocate.
