Los Angeles, CA, Feb 26, 2015 — CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Los Angeles, which provides advocacy services for abused and neglected children in the Los Angeles’ foster care system, will be hosting its first CASA Golf Classic on March 9th. The inaugural tournament will include a continental breakfast, a BBQ lunch, on-course contests and prizes, and an awards reception. The event will take place at the Braemar Country Club in Tarzana, which offers world-class golf with a beautiful backdrop of the Santa Monica Mountains and spectacular views. The event chairperson is AJ Safavi, Vice President and Financial Advisor at Morgan Stanley.

All proceeds will provide advocacy services for foster children in the Los Angeles dependency system. CASA of Los Angeles recruits, trains and provides community volunteers to serve as advocates for abused and neglected children. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) will assist nearly 7,000 children this year, including more than 1,000 children with intensive one-on-one advocacy. A CASA is a voice in court, in the community and for the child.

ABOUT CASA/LA
Founded in 1978, CASA of Los Angeles is a community-supported 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to mobilize community volunteers to advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children in the overburdened foster care system of Los Angeles County. CASA’s vision is of a Los Angeles where every foster child has an advocate and the opportunity to thrive. Through committed, highly trained everyday citizen volunteers, CASA brings the voice of a concerned community into the child welfare system. Studies have shown that children with CASAs receive more assistance and support than children without, and are more likely to be adopted or returned to their families and less likely to reenter the child welfare system.
