DEN­TON — CASA of Caro­line will host its fundraiser, Mak­ing a Dif­fer­ence — Through the Eyes of a Child, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Satur­day, Nov. 3, at Chop­tank Vis­i­tors and Her­itage Cen­ter in Den­ton.

The event fea­tures the photo project, Through the Eyes of a Child, on dis­play with pho­tos taken by the chil­dren CASA of Caro­line helps in court.

“We can’t have the chil­dren there to tell their story, but we wanted to tell their story through pho­tos they have taken,” said CASA Out­reach Co­or­di­na­tor Chan­dler John­son. “We will have them dis­played through­out the space for folks to look at. This is a unique way for the com­mu­nity to get to know who we are serv­ing in our com­mu­nity.

“We re­ally want to em­pha­size we are all about serv­ing the child,” John­son said. “It is our mis­sion that their voices are heard. We want to show the com­mu­nity their story.

CASA of Caro­line be­gan as a group of con­cerned cit­i­zens who rec­og­nized the need for some­one to watch out for the best in­ter­est of chil­dren in fos­ter care.
