Playhouse Raffle & Auction to Benefit CASA
Nov 15, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm$10.00
The 2015 CASA Operation Playhouse at the new Hopkins on Gibson Lane, benefiting CASA for Children, will run Tuesday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Nov. 15.
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children), a non-profit organization that advocates for abused or neglected children, presents its 9th annual Operation Playhouse fundraiser. Operation Playhouse 2015, to be held from Nov. 10 through Nov. 15 at the new Hopkins Ice House Grill and Bar located at 4030 Gibson Lane in Texarkana, Texas, is expected to draw many visitors throughout the six day event.
At any given time, there are 250 – 300 children in the foster care system in Miller and Bowie counties alone. The Operation Playhouse event garners an essential part of the funds needed to support the services CASA, The Texarkana Children’s Advocacy Center and Family Matters provide to these children in eleven counties in northeast Texas and southwest Arkansas. With the help of Ledwell Machinery, Texarkana College and Derksen Portable Buildings, there will be two playhouses on the market this year.
This year’s giveaway playhouse will be a cute light green cottage that can be won by simply making a $10 donation. The drawing to announce the playhouse winner will take place during the Operation Playhouse Auction Party on Sunday, Nov. 15, 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. There will also be a silent auction for a Texas Ranch Style playhouse, along with other great silent auction items donated from local merchants.
