The 2007 NewsChannel 11 Casas for CASA Children's Playhouse Display and raffle is now open at the South Plains Mall. Five wonderful Children's Playhouses are located next to the fountains in the Central Courtyard near the Dillards for Men.
Tickets are available on site. A $5.00 donation will purchase one ticket or a $20.00 donation will purchase five tickets.
This year's event will continue through Sunday, August 26th at 4:00 pm, when a drawing will be held at the display for each Child's Playhouse and each of the five playhouses will be awarded to a lucky winner.
This marks the second annual NewsChannel 11 Casas for CASA. The 2006 NewsChannel 11 Casas for CASA raised over $25,000 from the sale of raffle tickets and financial support from event sponsors. The proceeds from the event allowed CASA of the South Plains to hire an additional CASA Volunteer Supervisor thereby allowing CASA to accept additional cases of child abuse and neglect in the South Plains.
The South Plains faces an epidemic of child abuse and neglect with 19.0 children for every 1,000 living in the area confirmed to be victims of abuse or neglect. This 2006 statistic is a 6.2% increase over the statistics for 2005.
CASA of the South Plains will deliver the playhouse to your driveway as long as your home is in a 50 miles radius of Lubbock.
