PHILANTHROPY FOR KIDS

Kids for CASA is an auxiliary group for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Orange County that was first formed at Corona del Mar High School by two students - Garin Friedman & Zach St. Hilaire in 2016. Since then, Kids for CASA has grown across Orange County to other schools, as well as an independent group of students in all age groups who assist the CASA agency in raising awareness and funds to help fuel CASA's mission of serving children in the foster care system with a volunteer mentor & advocate who will work to ensure that the child is safe, has a permanent home and an opportunity to thrive.

For more information about joining Kids for CASA, please email Matthew at info@casaoc.org

TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESS

2017-2018 Fundraiser
2018-2019 Fundraiser
2019-2020 Fundraiser
Kids for CASA raised over $30,000 selling holiday ornaments for $100 each. The kids were able to do everyday household chores, lemonade stand sales, and more to underwrite all of the costs associated with the purchase of these ornaments.
Kids for CASA raised over $26,000 leading the fundraising efforts for the 2019 Pinwheel Project Fundraiser at Fashion Island. The kids sold pinwheels in their neighborhoods, outside fire stations and grocery stores, and to their friends and family. The kids were on hand at the actual Pinwheel Project event at Fashion Island on 5/11/19 to help raise more donations and hand out balloons to other children at the event.
Kids for CASA raised over $36,000 leading the fundraising efforts for the 2020 Pinwheel Project Fundraiser at Fashion Island. Due to COVID-19, the kids shifted their fundraiser into a virtual format and worked on a "Pinwheel Pass Video" that helped propel awareness and donations to new levels!
