CASA Promise of Hope Luncheon
CASA of Johnson & Wyandotte Counties will continue its tradition of asking the community to improve the future of abused children at the 8th Annual Promise of Hope Luncheon, April 7th at the Ritz Charles in Overland Park. The event, sponsored by CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), features a presentation from Ashley Jackson, a student of Missouri State University and foster care alumnus. As a teenager, Ashley spent five years in kinship foster care where she struggled to find permanence. Today, she works with FosterClub, a national network connecting current and former youth in care. Admission is free, although donations are encouraged. Reservations are required and can be made by contacting Alyssa Perbeck at (913) 715-4035 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
