The Blind Tiger in Bay St. Louis supports Court Appointed Special Advocates of Hancock County
CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates, works to provide abused and neglected children with quality advocacy in the court system and to secure a safe, permanent, and nurturing home for them.
The Blind Tiger partnered with CASA of Hancock County for the 4th year challenging the community and local business to match dollar for dollar up to $5000.
Thomas Genin, the owner of The Blind Tiger started encouraging other local businesses to donate.
CASA’s fundraising has increased over the years, and with the help of The Blind Tiger each child they serve has a volunteer representative, but donations are still needed to repair the building after damages from Hurricane Zeta.
“This came about maybe four of five years ago, my wife and I wanted to make a donation to CASA than we thought that it was kind of a collaborative effort. We thought that by calling out other individuals and businesses that the $5,000 would get more exposure in the form of a challenge,” Thomas Genin, owner of The Blind Tiger, said.
Cynthia Chaucin, Executive Director of CASA says, “Almost immediately he asked where do I sign up what do I do. As a parent and as a dad, I think it just resonated with him.”
CASA is still accepting donations throughout the holiday season. You can donate via Venmo, by check, or go on their website at CASAHancockCounty.org.
