Record Observer - - Obituaries -

EAS­TON — To honor, ac­knowl­edge and thank donors for their sup­port, CASA of the Mid-Shore held its fourth an­nual Cham­pi­ons of Hope Giv­ing So­ci­ety thankyou re­cep­tion on Aug. 26.

The event was made pos­si­ble through CASA board mem­ber Pa­tri­cia Spi­ta­leri and her hus­band, Vito, who hosted the cock­tails and din­ner re­cep­tion at the Tal­bot County Coun­try Club. Guests were in­tro­duced to master carver WG Sut­ter, who cur­rently is work­ing on a sculp­ture to be auc­tioned off at CASA’s May 2017 fundrais­ing event.

CASA of the Mid-Shore’s Cham­pi­ons of Hope are donors who give fi­nan­cial gifts of $1,000 or more an­nu­ally. At this year’s event, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Robin Daven­port shared sev­eral sto­ries with guests about how their sup­port is an in­vest­ment in hope for chil­dren.

“The longer I am with CASA, the more acutely aware I be­come that CASA is the voice in chil­dren’s ears telling them: ‘you mat­ter; you can ac­com­plish this; you’re smart; I be­lieve in you’,” Daven­port said. “We honor you as Cham­pi­ons of Hope be­cause that is ex­actly what you have given us: the chance to pro­vide hope to chil­dren.”

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Daven­port at 410822-2866, ext. 1, or rd@casamid­shore.org.
