CASA names Mary Szela as chairman
of its annual gala, “Seeds of Hope”
to help abused, neglected children For immediate release
CASA Lake County, Vernon Hills, announced that Mary Szela, chairman of Rib-X Pharmaceuticals and a former executive at Abbott, will chair its ninth annual fund-raising gala. The funds will assist 277 CASA volunteers to become advocates for neglected and abused children who through no fault of their own are in the Lake County Juvenile Court system.
The event, known in the past as CASAblanca, has netted $1,205,000. This year the extraordinary gala has “Seeds of Hope” as its theme to symbolize the commitment to both provide hope and a CASA advocate for every child who needs one.
WGN News Anchor Micah Materre will host the event that will begin with a reception starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 4 in the spectacular McGinley Gallery and Nichols Pavilion at the Chicago Botanic Garden, on Lake-Cook Road in Glencoe.
