CASA Cavalry Takes the Court

Nevada CASA Association, Reno, NV

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval joined local celebrities and community members in a benefit basketball game for Nevada CASA. The home team, dubbed the Nevada CASA Cavalry, competed against the Harlem Ambassadors, a team of talented players who tour nationally to raise money for community groups and nonprofits. The event raised over $6,000 for Nevada CASA. The event was so popular, according to Program Assistant Meg Davis, that they ended up with a waiting list of people who wanted to play in the game. “We made several great connections while recruiting our team,” said Davis, “including one business that has offered to partner with us for future events.”
