We do lots of beer events. We get asked to donate to lots of events. This weekend we get to give back to a great area cause. It’s right here, close to home, at our very own BARn. And you can join us!
This Saturday, July 16 from 2 to 7 p.m. we are hosting a fundraiser at the BARn for CASA of South Central Missouri.
What is CASA?
The Court Appointed Special Advocate Association (CASA), together with its state and local member programs, supports and promotes court-appointed volunteer advocacy so every abused or neglected child in the United States can be safe, have a permanent home and the opportunity to thrive.
Over 600,000 kids a year will filter through US foster care and our family court system. The average child will spend 20 months in the foster system, changing homes an average of three times. CASA organizes volunteers that work with these kids, making a difference in their lives.
We are fortunate enough to have a CASA organization in South Central Missouri that makes a difference in the lives of our area kids every day.
On Saturday we are giving a portion of every pint sold to CASA. Joining us in supporting CASA is Nashville-based singer/songwriter Michael Connors. He is donating his musical talent to the day. CASA staff and volunteers will be here, too, grilling burgers and hot dogs for sale to benefit the organization.
If beer isn’t your thing, you can still raise a pint of Andy’s Homemade Root Beer while enjoying a burger or dog and listening to the tunes. Or just stop by and drop a donation in the CASA bucket.
Just like every day at the BARn, families are welcome. Dogs (on a leash) are welcome. And always, please drink responsibly.
We are honored to have this opportunity to give back to a local cause. We hope you will join us.
