What is a CASAnova?

CASAnovas are extremely essential to CPN’s fundraising efforts and play a key role in working to raise funds by spreading the word to friends, colleagues, and the community to compete for the coveted CASAnova crown.

The online competition begins April 1st as CASAnovas work to solicit $1.00 votes with the goal of reaching a minimum of 1,200 votes ($1,200).

How did we come up with this amount?  $1,200 is the cost per child for CASA Advocacy.

On May 18, 2024 we will tally up the votes and the CASAnova with the highest number of votes will win the title of “King/Queen of CASA.”  The winner will be announced the next evening at our annual fundraising event, DUEL.
