CASA to Kick-off Mardi Gras Weekend with Virtual Event, Honors Advocates and Partners

February 11, 2021 — Bowling Green, KY — CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of South Central KY, an agency that provides concerned citizen volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in the family court systems throughout the region, invites the citizens of South Central Kentucky to tune into this year’s Virtual Boogie Down Bourbon Street presented by Hancock Bank & Trust Saturday, February 13, 2021 from 6:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. on WNKY-NBC and CASA’s Facebook Live (www.Facebook.com/casaofsck).  The virtual Boogie Down event, which is in its 4th year, will help kick-off Mardi Gras weekend!

The segment will feature 2020’s Volunteer Advocate of the Year, Guardian Ad Litem of the Year, and Community Partner of the Year, as well as, corporate sponsor messages with words of support for the CASA mission.

“Even though Boogie Down Bourbon Street looks quite different this year, it was so important to us to show that CASA and our wonderful advocates didn’t quit showing up for our most vulnerable children during the pandemic,” said Jana Sublett, Executive Director of CASA of South Central Kentucky. “It was actually quite the contrary.”

During the 2020, CASA of South Central KY’s 106 volunteers advocated for 244 abused, neglected, or dependent children throughout the region.  They tracked more than 1,883 hours of advocacy work throughout the year.  This event will assist in making sure CASA has funds to continue being a powerful voice for more vulnerable children in the foster care and family court system.

The segment is free to watch for anyone interested in CASA.  There will be a number of ways for supporters to find out how to get involved with CASA and make donations throughout Mardi Gras weekend.
