There are hundreds of kids in the Rockford school district and dozens of areas schools going through the court system because they have been neglected or abused.
Tonight there was a special fundraiser held by CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), a group that helps these kids through the difficult process.
CASA depends on donations and events like tonight's to stay up and running, and to find much needed volunteers that they desperately need right now.
There was a buffet and silent auction, MC'd by our own Mark Henderson.
CASA hopes to raise $3,000.00
