The Festival of Chairs was a huge success this year! We had well over 100 people participating in the auction, and we all enjoyed the LIVE event on Oct. 22, featuring many of our biggest fans. The First Lady of Arkansas, Susan Hutchinson, spoke eloquently about the work that CASA does every day to help abused children. Our Board President, Jennifer Morehead, along with the event chair, Justin Welter, spoke about their decision to help by supporting Children’s Advocacy Alliance. Kanga Studio provided great video services in putting it all together, especially the fashion show, organized by Michelle DuVall.
This year, 15 chair artists participated. Their chairs start the journey broken, tattered, abused, then they arrive at the Festival of Chairs as beautiful works of art. This is the visual representation of the path walked by the children served by the CAA daily.
At this year’s Festival we raised almost $60,000! That supports more than 30 forensic interviews, 20 medical exams, and 10 foster children receiving a CASA for the whole year.
