THE WOODLANDS, TX – For the second year, CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County was honored to be one of only ten nonprofit organizations selected as a beneficiary of the Waste Connections, Inc. annual Golf Classic for Kids and VIP Poker Experience. The event was held on March 24th and 25th at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center.
This year, a total of more than $1 million was raised by the premiere event. CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County was awarded $50,000 during a check presentation at Waste Connections’ headquarters in The Woodlands on July 2, 2019.
CASA Executive Director, Ann McAlpin, shares, “Right now in Montgomery County, about 9 children enter foster care each week.
