Advocate programsponsors fund-raiser
BOARDMAN -- The Mahoning County Court Appointed Special Advocates Program will sponsor a bowl-a-thon Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. at Boardman Lanes, 7524 Market St.
CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, is a group of community volunteers who speak on behalf of abused and neglected children in county juvenile court proceedings.
CASA is housed in the Mahoning County Juvenile Court and functions entirely as a private, nonprofit organization. Each year the board of directors has fund-raisers to not only support the group but raise awareness of the service CASA provides to children and families.
