Henrico County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) will host its 11th annual benefit art exhibition and silent auction from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16 at The Crossroads Art Center, 2016 Staples Mill Road.
Proceeds from the event will support CASA, a nonprofit organization that works on behalf of abused and neglected children before the Henrico Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court. CASA’s volunteers served 367 children during fiscal 2015-16, donating nearly 20,000 hours to their cases.
The silent auction will feature works by local artists and other items with a combined value of more than $10,000. These include paintings, jewelry, services, gift baskets, pottery and vacation packages.
While viewing the exhibition, guests will be able to learn from artists about what inspires their work. The event also will feature live music, a magic show, free hors d’oeuvres, food trucks and a cash bar.
