Holiday Extravaganza Celebrates Community

You don’t want to miss  CASA Kane County’s 2nd Annual Holiday Extravaganza to kick off your festivities!  The event will be held on Thursday, November 30th at Riverside Receptions—on the eve of Geneva’s famous Christmas walk.

This first extraordinary event celebrates children and families that is transformed into an elegant winter wonderland magical place that is as close as you will get to the actual Santa’s North Pole village.  Sparkling trees, silver bells along with colorful and beautifully-lit atmosphere that assimilates the spirit of Christmas.  This family event from 3:00 – 5:30 p.m. will feature Santa and Mrs. Claus, magic shows, a friend from the movie Frozen, face painting, candy stations, and kid-friendly snacks and hot chocolate for all.

The second half of the evening from 7:00 – 11:00 p.m. will feature a couture fashion show styled by Niala Conte, an upscale Geneva boutique modeling, fall/winter, evening gown and cocktail attire; along with hair and make-up presentations styled by Sojourn Salon and Spa; with sophisticated jewelry by Fox Jewelers.  Guests will also have the opportunity to dance the night away with a DJ and dance floor, hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine, and amazing silent and live auction items—themed with the spirit of the holiday season.  All guests of both events will receive a holiday gift book to shop and dine at local businesses.

Former Foster Child Speaks at 7th Annual Super Heroes Luncheon

CASA Kane County held its 7th Annual Super Heroes Event at Pheasant Run on Thursday, September 28th, 2017. Over 300 guests heard former CASA child and international best-selling author, Ashley Rhodes-Courter. Ashley has delivered speeches on Capitol Hill and given keynote addresses at conferences about adoption and foster care.

Ashley spoke eloquently and passionately about her nearly 10 years in foster care and how her CASA helped her through her adoption process. She recounted her many caseworkers that were assigned to her case over the years, with her CASA being the only constant person in her younger years.

We were honored to have Ashley share her personal story with the audience and hear the impact her CASA volunteer had on her.
