\r\n\r\nOn Mar. 18, before the championship game of CASA\u2019s March Madness Charity Basketball Tournament, Aundraya Simmons pulled the winning ticket determining that Missy Keatley was deemed the winner of a St. Croix vacation. CASA\u2019s executive director, Jenny Castle, called Keatley on the phone to inform her she had won the drawing.\r\n\r\n\u201cYou are kidding me! I never win anything! Are you serious I won?\u201d were the words heard from Keatley when told she indeed won a condo for a week.\r\n\r\nCASA of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit sold chances for one week\u2019s vacation on the beach front properties of the beautiful Sugar Beach Resort in St. Croix, donated by Cooper and Candie Benedict as a benefit for CASA.\r\n\r\nKeatley and nine others will be able to enjoy all the island has to offer: sailing to Buck Island National Monument, scuba diving \u201cThe Wall\u201d at Cane Bay;\u00a0 hiking or biking, horseback riding in the hillsides of Fredriksted, gaming at the one and only casino in the Virgin Islands, visiting their famous Cruzan Rum Distillery, shopping in the old Danish towns of Christiansted and Fredriksted, walking along the waterfront St. Croix Heritage Trail, kayaking in the phosphorescent waters of Salt River Bay, golfing and so much more.\r\n\r\nCASA offers a big congratulations Keatley and a thank-you to all those who bought chances to help the agency so that a caring, trained adult can advocate for our local abused and neglected children.\r\n\r\nKeatley is the owner of Kinetic Connections LLC, an ASO provider contracted through the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources to provide in-home services to parents, children and families with the goal of keeping children safe and preserving families.\r\n\r\nCASA, which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates, trains volunteer advocates to speak on behalf of abused and neglected children in the court system. CASA was created to ensure the abuse and neglect these children suffered at home does not continue in the system. Judges appoint CASA volunteers to be a voice for these children in court, which results in the children being placed in safe homes where they can thrive. CASA volunteer advocates are ordinary people doing extraordinary things and who donate 3-10 hours a month to helping the children they are assigned.\r\n\r\nMore information about CASA may be found on our website at casaadvocates.org.
