2019 THIRD ANNUAL FUN-HUB BASH FOR CASA RAISES $7,200+

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 29, 2019

[MARION, IL]One month after the FUN-HUB Bash for CASA, we are excited to make an official announcement regarding the total dollars raised.  Inflatable Fun of Southern Illinois and The HUB Recreation Center teamed up again on Saturday, March 30th for their third annual Bash for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Williamson County. This year, we were able to raise $7,216 and all of the proceeds go towards providing a voice for abused and neglected children currently going through the court system in our community.

The following event sponsors helped us jump start the fundraising for this much needed cause by donating a total of $3,000: First Southern Bank, Dr. Cosimi Dental Implants and Periodontics, Novacom Communications and Clintech. The rest of the funds came from wristband sales and half of the glitter tattoo sales. More than 700 children and their families enjoyed 10 different inflatables throughout the gymnasium along with The HUB’s two-story waterslide and Aquatics Center the day of the event.

Last year, this event raised more than $6,800 and $4,500 during our first Bash in 2017, so we are thrilled to see the Bash continue to grow and generate more money for CASA each year. As of March 31, 2019 Williamson County had 213 open juvenile cases. Funding is needed to train volunteers to advocate for the best interest of our most vulnerable children. CASA does not receive any tax based dollars, making fundraising like the Bash essential for the program.
