Kickin’ it for CASA coincides with Child Abuse Awareness Month and all proceeds will benefit CASA at Woodlawn.
CASA at Woodlawn is a non-profit organization that serves abused and neglected children in Boyle and Mercer Counties by recruiting, training, and matching community volunteers to advocate for children in Family Court.
CASA at Woodlawn served 182 of the 373 children in the Boyle and Mercer County Family Court system in 2012. Its mission is to ensure every child victim has a CASA volunteer and receives a safe and permanent home.
Danville Indoor is owned and operated by Jeb Burch, head men’s soccer coach at Centre College, and his wife, Laura Jack. Burch and Jack planned the event to bring awareness to the need for advocacy for victims of abuse and neglect in Boyle and Mercer counties.
The event is unique because during a 24-hour period, it will allow families, teams and friends to play for fun while raising community awareness and funds for a well-needed cause. Soccer experience is not necessary to be apart of this event.
“This is an opportunity for us to all rally around a truly great cause: advocacy for young people in the family court system is a faceless program given the nature and age of those in need. We hope this event brings this cause more to the public and raises much-needed funds, necessary for CASA to continue to support those young people in need,” said Burch.
