Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Chautauqua County announces its 2nd annual CASA’s for CASA playhouse raffle fundraiser. CASA of Chautauqua County has once again partnered with Howard Hanna Holt Real Estate to raise funds to provide children with a safe and permanent home.

On September 7, CASA will raffle a KidKraft Garden View playhouse built to inspire imaginative play in a beautiful house that is full of fun and excitement. This playhouse features exciting details like a working doorbell, phone with clicking buttons, a clock with moveable hands, a functioning mailbox and a bistro awning. Perfect for that special little one to enjoy for years to come.

“Last year was our inaugural CASA’s for CASA playhouse raffle and it was a huge success thanks to all of our sponsors and supporters! This year, we are so excited to bring it back and offer an adorable little playhouse that will be a perfect addition to any backyard play space,” says Kathy Park, executive director of CASA. “We have found that even through trying times, our wonderful supporters continue to give and we couldn’t be more grateful.”

“CASA of Chautauqua County plays such an integral role in ensuring abused and neglected children find a permanent home where they can thrive. For over 35 years, our family of agents have been finding the perfect homes for families right here in Chautauqua County,” says Stephen Holt, real estate broker of Howard Hanna Holt Real Estate and presenting sponsor. “I’m proud to support CASA while they advocate for children who are in search of a home where they can feel loved.”

Entries are $10 and available online at, at any Howard Hanna Holt Real Estate location and from any CASA board or staff member. Proceeds go towards crucial funding of the CASA program.

CASA of Chautauqua County provides a caring adult to advocate for abused and neglected children in the foster care system. Currently the program is reaching half of the children that would benefit from having a CASA volunteer. The specially trained volunteers help guide these children through the overburdened legal and child welfare systems, ensuring they don’t get overlooked, receive the services they need and ultimately, find placement in a safe and loving home. The CASA’s for CASA fundraiser will help offset the costs associated with recruiting, training and supporting the CASA volunteers.

Sponsors for the playhouse raffle are Howard Hanna Holt Real Estate and LandPro Equipment, LLC.

The raffle will be held on September 7. Winner will be notified by phone call.
