We are very grateful to our business partners and employee volunteers who made the tournament a great success.”

Levy commented, “Every day we see firsthand the terrible impact of abuse and neglect on children, but our friends at Archon and Pioneer remind us once again of the great goodness that exists to help these children.

About CASA

Dallas CASA is an organization of volunteers who are voices for abused and neglected children in court. Today, just in Dallas County, more than 2,000 children who have been removed from their homes are waiting for the courts to decide where they can safely and permanently live. CASA volunteers--Court Appointed Special Advocates--are trained and supervised to make recommendations that help judges decide what is best for each child. For many children, CASA is the only constant during a scary, uncertain time, and a CASA advocate can make an immediate and critical impact on the life of a child.
