2023 Light of Hope Breakfast, April 20 Sheraton Crown Center Ballroom

Join Jackson County CASA at the 23rd Annual Light of Hope Breakfast as we celebrate 40 years of advocacy for children in the foster care system since our founding in 1983 by members of the Kansas City Chapter of the National Council of Jewish Women. Honorary Chair Jeff Blaesing of JE Dunn will share how our child-centered mission shaped the redesign of our award-winning renovated building. And award-winning journalist Gabriella Pagán will tell how her experience in foster care inspires her work as a CASA Volunteer. We will honor CASA Volunteer Bill Nelson with the Teresa Rabideau Award for Volunteer Excellence. And we will announce this year's surprise Light of Hope honoree at the breakfast.
