This Thursday, January 14, our generous neighbors at Phil's Ice House and Amy's Ice Creams on Burnet Road are having a fundraiser for CASA of Travis County, a non-profit organization that advocates for children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect.

As a volunteer advocate, I want to encourage folks in the area to eat at Phil's or Amy's (or both!) on Thursday and tell the cashier you're there "for the CASA kids." The more people who buy their meals or ice cream for the CASA kids, the more Phil's and Amy's will donate to CASA of Travis County!

More than a thousand children in Travis County benefit from the help and guidance of CASA volunteers each year. Now you can support them simply by enjoying a delicious meal or ice cream cone.

We hope to see you there on the 14th – and remember to tell them you're there for the CASA kids!
