Join a CASA Event Committee

CASA events are planned and run by volunteer committees who work closely with our Events Manager and CASA staff. Volunteering on an event committee is a great way to support and get to know CASA of Will County, especially if you don’t think volunteering as an advocate is right for you at this time. We are always looking for people with experience in marketing, fundraising, event planning and more. For additional information, email our Events Manager Lisa Gunggoll at lisa@lg-pr.com and specify which event you are interested in supporting.
