For the second year, CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County was honored to be one of only ten non-profit organizations selected as a beneficiary of the Waste Connections Inc. annual Golf Classic for Kids and VIP Poker Experience. The event was held on March 24th and 25th at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center.

This year, more than $1 million was raised by the event; CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County was awarded $50,000.

CASA Executive Director, Ann McAlpin, shares, “Right now in Montgomery County, about 7 children enter foster care each week. It costs $1,500 to support one child with a volunteer Advocate for a year.” McAlpin continues, “This incredible donation from Waste Connections will allow us to provide more than 33 abused children with Advocates to look out for their best interests in the coming year.”
