Court Appointed Special Advocates of Jefferson and Gilpin Counties is looking for donations and sponsorships for its annual A Night for CASA gala.

At 6 p.m. Oct. 5 at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, the gala will include hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, live and silent auctions, dinner and more.

The organization solicits new items to be donated for both auctions. All proceeds from the evening benefit CASA of Jeffco/Gilpin programs.

“In the past our auctions have been a great success. We have raised thousands of dollars for our most vulnerable children and I am confident this year will be just as successful,” Jan Podoll, board president of CASA Jeffco/Gilpin, said in a news release.

Items donated may range from gift cards, jewelry, sports tickets, golf outings, tickets to family attractions, dinners, trips and more. Previous donations include sports watch parties, theater tickets, golf weekends and 7-night stays in Hawaii and Mexico.

CASA of Jeffco/Gilpin also welcomes sponsors for the event with a variety of sponsorship opportunities available. Packages range from $5,000, $2,500, $1,750, $1,000, $500, $300 and $250 and each will recognize and promote the sponsor’s organization.

“Our priority is the well-being of the kids. Every penny from this event goes to ensuring we have advocates for our cases. So, every donation counts, big or small,” Leah Varnell, executive director of the program, said in the release. “We want our attendees, donors and sponsors to know that they are making a difference in improving the lives of hundreds of children in the court system.”

To donate items or become a sponsor, contact Jill Gimbel at 303-271-6539 or JillGimbel@CASAJeffcoGilpin.com. For information about CASA Jeffco/Gilpin, visit www.casajeffcogilpin.com.
