CASA for the Highland Lakes Area’s golf tournament on Oct. 14 raises money for the nonprofit’s mission to advocate for abused and neglected children forced into the court system. A shotgun start is at 8:30 a.m. at Delaware Springs Golf Course, 600 Delaware Springs Blvd. in Burnet.

CASA, short for Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children, recruits and supervises court-appointed volunteers to advocate for children who come into the court system as a result of abuse or neglect. Established in Burnet County in 1991, the organization has expanded to serve Blanco, Burnet, Llano, Lampasas, and San Saba counties.

Each golfer pays $150, which includes a cart, greens fee, and meal. Four-person teams compete in a scramble format. Golfers of all abilities are invited.

Raffle and door prizes are available.

Sponsorship packages range from $75 to $2,500. Call Janessa Hardaway at 325-388-3440 or email for more information.
