Bartenders replace tellers at CASA’s Major Donor Appreciation event held at Boston Private Bank and Trust Company in San Mateo on March 10, 2016. Pictured above is Gayle Almeida-Hage, CASA’s Board Secretary and a Vice President at Boston Private Bank & Trust, enjoying a unique transaction at the teller window. CASA’s Board, staff, volunteers and special guests, CASA’s Heartfelt Friends, gathered over delicious food and drinks provided by Knight’s Catering.
During a short presentation, one of our extraordinary volunteers, Sally Weir, shared her inspiration for becoming a Heartfelt Donor. CASA volunteer Anna Fairbank moved audiences with the story of her CASA child who has finally been placed in a forever home after multiple moves among foster families these past five years. Thank you to all of our donors whose generosity allows us to provide comfort and hope to the most vulnerable children in our community.
