At the CASA Retro Party Event , held at the Harris Pavilion on April 30th, people joined together; putting on their best retro costumes and getting on the dance floor. Manassas’ CASA Executive Director, Stephanie Hodges, deeply believes in supporting children throughout the entire healing and adoption process of abuse. Locally, there are children that have experienced physical, emotional and substance abuse. 215 children are currenly served by Manassas’ CASA.
Interact Club joined in to also help with the event where ever needed. If it came down to chasing down flying items because due to weather or help adjust tables for people. It’s great to see people support a great cause.
Games, contests, and food were at the event to raise money. The “Pie to the Face” game was the most popular with the people because of how entertaining it was seeing people get pied. Children were encouraged to paint and buy colorful rocks. Music was provided by a pumped up DJ, playing music to get people on to the dance floor.
People came together through food trucks, bag tosses, face painting, and robots all in support of CASA. All in all, the people were able to spend time to pause and pay attention to abused and neglected children of Manassas with the help of CASA. Event sponsored by MICRON.
