100+ Women Who Care Valley of the Sun donated $11,150 to the Scottsdale-based Voices for CASA Children, a nonprofit organization that provides CASA volunteers (Court Appointed Special Advocates) to children navigating the foster-care system.
The philanthropic group of 100-plus women meets quarterly to create an immediate and positive impact on the community. Members nominate local charities that are important to them. Three charities are presented at each giving circle, the members vote and the charity with the most votes is that quarter’s recipient. Nikki Ballin, a member of the chapter’s Scottsdale group, nominated Voices for CASA Children on Feb. 6.
Funds donated go directly to the selected organization to help it raise awareness, support its mission and achieve its goals.
