At the 3rd Annual Grant Recipient Luncheon for the Kelly For Kids Foundation, held on January 11, 2010 at Ilio Dipaolo’s restaurant in Blasdell, NY, Genesee County CASA for Children received a grant for $2,500 from the Kelly For Kids Foundation. This grant came out of the support of Terry Hills Restaurant and Golf Course. Each year Terry Hills chooses grant recipients that work with children in the community for such funds for hosting the tournament put on by Jim Kelly.
Genesee County CASA for Children would like to thank Terry Hills, Mr. Kelly, and the Kelly For Kids Foundation for their generous support. The funds from this grant will assist CASA in continuing our mission to provide trained community volunteers to advocate for the best interests of those children who come to the attention of Family Court as a result of abuse or neglect. CASA’s hope for this upcoming year is to recruit and train at least 5 new advocates that will be able to take case assignment and advocate for the abused and neglected children in our community.
