County Judge Barry Hyde will host the 22nd Annual Judge’s Cup CASA Classic on Sept. 23 at Rebsamen Golf Course in Little Rock. The tournament is a four-man scramble and the entry fee is $300.00 per team. The entry fee covers the 8 a.m. or 1 p.m. flight, a cart, lunch for all participants and prizes for various challenges. Trophies and other prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams for both flights.
“The funds raised through the Judge’s Cup CASA Classic are vital to supporting the work we do on behalf of abused and neglected children in Pulaski County. These children deserve and have the right to have a voice; our volunteers are that voice,” CASA Executive Director, Darry Capps said.
All proceeds benefit Pulaski County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). CASA is a non-profit organization that trains volunteers from the community to advocate for abused and neglected children in foster care that are going through the court system. CASA Advocates speak up for the best interest of those children in court, in their schools and other areas and monitor those cases until the children find a safe, permanent home and the case is closed. With over 800 children in foster care in Pulaski County alone, there is a great need for volunteers that are willing to be trained to become CASA Advocates.
