CASA of the Mid-Shore honors Champions for Children

Some Champions of Hope gather to celebrate CASA’s good work at Shipshead Farm on Oct. 24.

EASTON — To honor, acknowledge and thank donors for their generous support, CASA of the Mid-Shore held its annual Champions of Hope Thank You Reception on Oct. 24.

The event was held at the Manor House of Shipshead Farm, where guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres prepared by Gourmet by the Bay.

Board of Directors’ Second Vice President Stephanie Nagel welcomed CASA’s Champions to the event, after which Executive Director Robin Davenport addressed the guests.

In thanking them for being Champions, Davenport said, “Here is the truth: CASA is the voice in children’s ears telling them, ‘You matter, you can accomplish this, you’re smart, I believe in you.’ We honor you as Champions of Hope because that is what you have given us: the chance to provide hope to children.”

She closed her remarks by offering a quote from Judge Brett Wilson, who last year said at the Champions of Hope reception, “It is the donation of your time and your treasure which allows CASA of the Mid-Shore to fight for, advocate for and defend the rights of abused and neglected children, right here in our communities.”

CASA of the Mid-Shore is a private, non-profit organization created to advocate for children who are under the protection of the Talbot, Dorchester, Queen Anne’s or Kent County Circuit Court because of abuse, neglect, abandonment or their parents’ inability to safely care for them.
