CASA of the High Plains is hosting its ninth annual Valentine’s Evening fundraiser from 5 to 10 p.m. Feb. 9 at the Robbins Center at Fort Hays State University.

CASA celebrates its 30th anniversary serving as a voice for children. In 2016, there were about 100 children who needed Court Appointed Special Advocates in the 23rd Judicial District. The district covers Ellis, Rooks, Trego and Gove counties. The CASA volunteers are assigned to the court cases for children who have been removed from their homes for abuse or neglect. CASAs serve as the voice for these vulnerable children in court.

The event will include dinner, an open bar, and silent and live auctions, as well as a wine toss and cupcake raffle.

Items for bid include a Kansas State Skydive adventure or Mountain-Top Family climbing trip, a Jayhawk signed basketball and a Bill Snyder signed football.

Tickets are $60 each or a table of eight for $420. Tickets can be purchased at the CASA of the High Plains office, 107 W. 13th, or Commerce Bank, 2200 Vine.
