Introducing the Auxiliary OF San Mateo County              

The Garden Party, CASA’s premier fundraising event, is hosted annually by the Auxiliary of CASA of San Mateo County.  The Auxiliary was formed in 2007 when two dedicated women invited some friends to a meeting to learn about CASA’s work and mission. What started as a modest fundraising event has grown into our successful Garden Party, which inspires and entertains over 300 guests each year in August.

These dedicated women donate their talents, professional experience and several months of their time to orchestrate this elegant event.  Over the years, the Auxiliary has been grateful for the support of friends, business associates and neighbors who have generously donated wine, appetizers and provided us with gorgeous garden settings in private homes.  With the additional collaboration of sponsors, host committee members and other champions, proceeds from the Garden Party support nearly 20% of CASA’s annual budget.

The Auxiliary is proud of its role in helping CASA provide comfort and hope to foster children in San Mateo County.  If you are passionate about improving the lives of our community’s most vulnerable children, we invite you to join our Auxiliary.
