Founded by the Junior League over 30 years ago, Friends of CASA (FOCASA) began as a 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 The Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point which raises over $450,000 annually. 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.

To learn more about Friends of CASA please contact Matthew Wadlinger at info@casaoc.org or 714-619-5149.
