Community helps make CASA fund raising event a success

To the Editor:

In a time where individual donations are decreasing and grants are being cut, Wilson County has stepped up to make sure that charities are not being left out.

On July 25, Wilson County businesses came through to help Wilson County CASA have a very successful fundraiser. The following Wilson County businesses provided door prizes and silent auction items for our biennial reverse raffle:

These local businesses helped to raise just over $19,000, which will be split over two years, for the CASA program.  In addition to local businesses, 275 local citizens purchased the 300 available tickets. I think this speaks volumes for the community. It certainly makes me proud to be part of this community. On behalf of the board of directors and volunteers of CASA, thank you Wilson County for helping volunteers speak up for abused children.
