As part of my personal commitment to community, “Simply Wood Rings” donated a custom piece of art jewelry for an amazing, Chicago-based cause.
This month, the CASA (court appointed special advocates) program of Cook County held a cocktail reception and silent auction in hopes of raising funds for their non-profit organization that advocates for children’s rights in the Cook County court system. All proceeds from the reception help to ensure that CASA of Cook County can continue providing trained volunteers to abused and neglected children in our communities. These volunteers ensure that children have a voice in court and a chance to grow up in a safe, permanent home.
After the silent auction concluded, I was pleased to hear that the winning bid for my donation exceeded its actual value, so CASA received more compensation than I had intended! I feel it is my responsibility to continue to support causes like CASA and believe we should all be more proactive in our respective communities.
