On May 9th, FIDEVIA Construction Management and Consulting raised over $17,000 at their first charity golf fundraiser benefiting CASA of Berks and Lancaster Counties. The event was considered a success from all sides, hosting 124 golfers and bringing in more than 150 sponsors and donors.
CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, has organizations in 49 states training volunteer advocates to work with children in need of support and provide those children a voice within the legal system. Providing a child with a a CASA volunteer advocate leads to long term benefits for the child and the community like finding them a safe and permanent home. With the money raised from the FIDEVIA Golf Classic, CASA will be able to grow the program by recruiting and supporting more community volunteers to advocate on behalf of more foster children in Berks County.
