17th Annual Cars for CASA

April 28th, 2022 by

On Sunday May 15, 2022, the Metro East Division of the Dallas Builders Association will host its 17th annual Cars for CASA auto show to raise money for Lone Star CASA, Inc.

CASA is a national volunteer movement that began in the late 1970s in Seattle. Its purpose is to find community volunteers to act as a “voice in court” for abused and neglected children. The first CASA program was established in Dallas in 1980. In Texas, there are 72 local CASA programs with 10,856 volunteers serving 30,136 foster children. Lone Star CASA, Inc. advocates for children in Rockwall and Kaufman Counties.

Cars for CASA, which is put on annually by more than 40 volunteers, has grown to become one of the most successful auto shows in North Texas. The first event in 2005 featured 80 cars and raised $2,600. This year’s show is expected to feature more than 400 cars and raise more than $75,000 for Lone Star CASA. To date the show has raised in excess of $645,000 for Lone Star CASA!!!

“We’re proud to play a role in helping CASA kids rebuild their lives,” said Dave Hambley. “The Cars for CASA show is a great way to support a worthy cause and raise awareness of the CASA role in our children’s lives.”

From vintage autos to cutting-edge cars, there is always something exciting to see at Cars for CASA. Attendees can also enjoy food and beverages from local restaurants. The event will have a live DJ, a 50/50 pot, and a silent auction. CASA will also have a booth set up for any individuals that are interested in learning more about their organization.

Cars for CASA is sponsored by The City of Rockwall, Farmers Electric Cooperative, Rusty Wallis VW, Toyota of Rockwall, United Parcel Service, Dust Free, and many others.
