C.A.S.A. Kicks Off Mardi Gras Season with Annual Gala

This weekend, Court Appointed Special Advocates (C.A.S.A.) of Hancock County kicks off Carnival season with their 4th annual Mardi Gras Gala. C.A.S.A. advocates for children in the Hancock County foster system who often are voiceless.

This Saturday, January 17th, the group will transform the Bay St. Louis Community Hall into a benefit festival, complete with a Mardi Gras King and Queen. The New Orleans band, Cuisine, will rock the night away and Jimmie Ladner will keep everyone full of good food. This event helps fund C.A.S.A. for the entire year, and the more money they raise, the more children they can advocate for.

Cynthia Chauvin, Executive Director of C.A.S.A. of Hancock County, says, “Crowning those two folks is an important part of the evening. They largely are two people who have gone above and beyond to support C.A.S.A. and to support children and the safety of children in our county, and we’re incredibly blessed to have them as community members who really put kids first.”

If you’d like to purchase a ticket for the gala, you can do so at the C.A.S.A. office on Highway 90 in Bay St. Louis or go online to www.casahancockcounty.org. Tickets are $40 each if purchased in advance or $50 each at the door.
