Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Chautauqua County announces its 3rd Annual Casas 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 1, CASA will raffle a KidKraft Hillcrest 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.

Entries are $10 and available online at, at any Howard Hanna Holt Real Estate location, select Community Bank, N.A. locations, ADD Lumber TrueValue 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 Casas 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, ADD Lumber TrueValue, Maple Springs Tree Service, and Chautauqua Chemicals Co., Inc.

The raffle will be held on September 1. Winner will be notified by phone call.
