M&T Bank recently donated $25,000 to become the exclusive Hero Sponsor of CASA of Luzerne County’s second annual CASAblanca Gala, a casino themed event featuring delicious cuisine, festive drinks and entertainment to be held Thursday September 28th at the FM Kirby Center for the Performing Arts.
CASA which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate receives no public funding. This nonprofit organization’s specially trained court appointed volunteers serve as a voice for a child in the judicial system, ensuring that each child is placed in a safe and nurturing environment. The goal of the organization is to ensure that every child in Luzerne County is granted this fundamental right.
M&T’s generosity and vision will help to fund the continued operations of the small staff supporting dedicated volunteers who advocate for these most vulnerable children. This provides hope and the chance for each child in Luzerne County to thrive and flourish.
