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. 15 at The Crossroads Art Center, 2016 Staples Mill Road.
Event proceeds 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 375 local children in fiscal year 2016-17, donating more than 10,500 hours to their cases.
The silent auction will feature about 75 bid items, including works by local artists, services and getaway packages. While viewing the “Into the Woods” all-media 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.
Admission is free and open to the public. For information, join Henrico CASA on Facebook, call (804) 501-1671 or go to henricocasa.org or crossroadsartcenter.com.
