Salt Creek Grille’s 17th Annual Wine & Martini Tasting Fundraiser benefitting CASA for Children of Monmouth County will be held Thursday, April 23 from 7-10 p.m.
The chosen 2020 charity was announced recently with a flag presentation. The flag with the charity’s logo will be raised from the landmark restaurant year round to further public awareness about the charity. The April 23 fundraising event, which is always a sell-out, features heavy-hors d’oeuvres, serving stations and over 100 different wine varietals and several distilled spirits to taste. There is a live auction filled with unique items and live music by The Bobby Boyd Trio.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the night’s events will go directly to CASA. To date, Salt Creek Grille ‘s annual event has raised over a $1 million in total funds for 16 local charities that serve children’s needs!
Tickets to the event are $150 per person and sponsorships are available. To purchase tickets or become a sponsor visit www.casaofmonmouth.org
CASA for Children of Monmouth County serves our county’s most vulnerable children. Volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in an inappropriate group or foster homes. The volunteers stay with each case until it is closed, and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused and neglected children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presencen—nthe one adult who cares only for them. There are currently over 400 children in New Jersey placed in foster care homes.
