CALLING ALL SUPERHEROES (AND VILLAINS)!

CASA of San Joaquin County is currently recruiting SUPERHEROES and VILLAINS to appear as atmosphere characters at our 2 nd Annual CASA Superhero 5K Run/Walk Fundraiser Event at Lodi Lake on Saturday, October 1, 2016. From 8am-12pm.

Superheroes and Villains are needed to occupy 'Superhero Alley’ at the fundraiser event and be available for photos with children, guests and runners. Superheroes and Villains may also be asked to participate in the Run Start Off and Awards ceremonies. Superheroes and Villains will likely be featured in promotional photos as well as during live coverage’s from 93.7 'the Bull’ or Good Day Sacramento who’s programs will both be airing promotions live from our event.

CASA of San Joaquin County is also in search of Superheroes and Villains available to help us promote our event at the Lodi Grape Festival (Thursday, September 15, from 4-8pm and Friday - Sunday from 12-8pm). Superheroes and Villains will remain indoors at the CASA promotion booth and appear for photo opportunities with guests of the Grape Festival. Superheroes and Villains will not be asked to walk around or pass out promotional material.....

Superheroes or Villains must have their own costumes. Water and snacks will be available for all volunteers throughout either event. CASA of San Joaquin County is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity operating as a program of the Child Abuse Prevention Council. Volunteer hours qualify as In-Kind tax deductable charitable donations. Volunteer hours also qualify as credit towards High School Graduation Community Service Requirements.

Anyone interested in participating in either event may contact Andy at adominguez@nochildbuse.org. Please include your name, e-mail or contact number, name of the Superhero or Villain you will appear as and your availability for either/both events. Please also attach a photo of yourself in your costume.

CASA of San Joaquin County recruits and trains volunteers of the community who are appointed by the judge to serve as officers of the juvenile court and advocate; in court, at home and at school for the very best interest of the foster youth in San Joaquin County. When reunification is no longer a possibility, CASA’s overall goal is to find each foster youth a safe and permanent home with loving and supportive individuals.

CASA of San Joaquin County works closely with HSA Child Welfare Services, the Superior Court of San Joaquin County, SENECA and the Juvenile Probation Department of San Joaquin County in order to access unique resource services and programs that allow us to support our youth further in Recidivism Reduction, extended family finding and preparing for transitions into adulthood.
