CASA to host fundraising golf tourney

SEQUIM — Friends of Court Appointed Special Advocate, which is known as CASA, is preparing to host its annual golf tournament Aug. 10 to benefit foster children in Clallam County.

The tournament at Sunland Golf and Country Club, 109 Hilltop Drive, Sequim, starts at 9 a.m. Aug. 10.

Entree fee is $50 per player and $25 for Sunland members. The fee includes greens fees, prizes, hot dogs and more. It costs $15 per rider for carts.

CASA volunteers advocate for children in dependency court.

Valerie Brooks, CASA coordinator for Clallam County, said the tournament is run by CASA and community volunteers and that the money raised goes straight to foster children, not the program.

“This is the only fundraiser the group does and benefits only local foster children,” she said.

This year the goal is to raise $12,000 to $15,000, she said.

Last year, money was used to help buy foster children tablets for school, camps, music lessons, sports fees, equine therapy, clothing, shoes, arts and dance classes, and “many other things that help our local foster children heal and not feel singled out among their peers,” said Brookes.

Sponsors can have their signs placed at various locations around the tournament.

Contact the Sunland Pro Shop for cart reservation at 360-683-6800, ext. 13.

For more information, contact CASA at 360-565-2621.

Although there are still details to attend to and minor adjustments to be made, the facility will be open daily from dawn until dusk.
