Thank you for making the 2017 event
the most successful ever!
CASA of Will County held the 2017 Have a Heart for the Child Gala at Ruffled Feathers Golf Club in Lemont. With more than 200 attendees, we were able to raise more than $100,000 to support our programs for abused and neglected children in Will County — a record for this event!
Once again, we welcomed back as our master of ceremonies NBC Chicago Meteorologist Andy Avalos. For the third year, and back by popular demand, Andy hosted the evening and acted as our auctioneer. Thanks to his passion for the cause, we were able to raise more than $30,000 in our Fund-A-Need — another record for the gala!
