Friday night’s game will begin at 7 pm, located at the Dr. Jack Dugan Family Soccer and Swim Stadium, 800 Nile Dr. The Corpus Christ Football Club Sharks will be up against Mississippi Brilla. Each ticket sale will give a portion of the ticket price to support the Coastal Bend CASA group so that they can provide children in foster care the services they need!

CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate, but despite the juristic name they do everything they can to serve children that have been displaced from their homes. These members are here to speak up for children in court, to help them build family connections, be a role model, and even an advocate for their education and health. They are truly putting their entire lives into helping these kids!

By promoting and supporting the volunteers at CASA, the Corpus Christi Football Club hopes to gather further interest from future volunteers for their next training session on July 16th. With more volunteers, more children can have the guidance and support they need to travel the foster care system and find a forever family!

They hope to gather another 15 volunteers to add to the existing 147 members. They are already serving more than 300 kids, but another 800 are in foster care from last year alone without the help they need! CASA will have an information table for the game attendees to learn more about the organization.

If you would like to participate or learn even more, CASA meets every Wednesday for a 45 minute Info Session at noon, located at 2602 Prescott.
