Philanthropy: 

Every spring, our chapter puts on Theta Ironbrawl to raise money for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). Our main event is a flag football tournament. We also host a Zumba class, a 5K run, and a day of service. We recently added a new event: Pasta for CASA, in partnership with Corvallis Pastini Pastaria. During this event, anyone who eats at Pastini can mention Kappa Alpha Theta and/or CASA, and 50% of the proceeds are donated to our philanthropy.

The mission of the National Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Association, together with its state and local members, is to support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy so that every abused or neglected child can be safe, establish permanence and have the opportunity to thrive.

CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.
