CASA Goes Retro to Celebrate the Extraordinary Give!

LANCASTER, PA (October 22, 2018) – Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Lancaster County is counting down the days to November 16th and the Extraordinary Give. Please consider making a donation to us and/or to any of the great participating nonprofit organizations in Lancaster. With your donation, CASA of Lancaster can advocate for more children to ensure their fundamental human right of having a safe, nurturing, and permanent home is met. On November 16th, all day, visit ExtraGive.org, and every dollar donated will be stretched by a pool of cash and prizes from the Lancaster County Community Foundation, Rodgers & Associates, The S. Dale High Family Foundation, and other corporate sponsors.

In keeping with the Extraordinary Give, the Groovy Giving Gig: Peace, Love, and Giving will host nearly 2,000 people at Tellus360 for a celebration of Lancaster City and its many nonprofit organizations. This free and public event increases engagement between Lancaster community members, donors, and the organizations they support. Tellus360 will open at 9:00 am to host a live broadcast of WITF’s Smart Talk. Between 10:00 – 2:00, you are invited to enjoy a light brunch while visiting representatives from the 14 Groovy Giving Gig organizations. Turn up at 2:00 and watch contestants compete in the Groovy Game Show, a 70’s trivia contest. Come to Tellus360 between 4:00 – 9:00 pm and you will swear you’ve travelled back in time while you are visiting the Woodstock and Disco-themed activities of each nonprofit. A free pint is available to the cool cats who visit all 14 organizations.

This 24 hour event benefits both nonprofits and local community members in so many ways – it’s not only educational and entertaining, it also gives visitors a unique opportunity to feel the spirit of the day and rally around it. Questions? If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact CASA by calling 717-208-3280, or emailing casa@casalancaster.org. Thank you in advance for your generosity to our organization!
