From the "Great Give" to "Where We Live"--and July 20 Benefit
8:00 pm edt
Foster Care Month is May, when the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven holds
its "Great Give" fundraising event for nonprofits.
This year, Connecticut CASA raised nearly $30,000 during this week-long event, from 114 donors. Many thanks to all who donated these key unrestricted funds, and to matching
challenges that helped propel this success!
During the Great Give, WNHH
and the New Haven Independent interviewed Connecticut CASA volunteer advocate Tricia Goldburn and me, with the video on our YouTube channel.
In addition, on that YouTube channel is a subsequent interview of Tricia and me on WNPR's "Where We Live" program, which also featured a foster parent and Connecticut DCF Commissioner Vannessa Dorantes.Now, save the date of July 20 for a "Cooking for CASA" Benefit led by Chef Claire Criscuolo at New Haven's Dixwell Community "Q" House. Early sponsors include Yale
University, Akerman LLP, the Community Foundation, and the NewAlliance Foundation, as well as Claire's Corner Copia.
