CASA of Caroline is thrilled to announce two events for September in their new Dine For A Child Series. On Friday, September 20, Nich’s in Denton will be hosting Coffeehouse For A Child from 6pm -9:30pm, with local group Ampersand performing from 7 -8:30. Ampersand is a family-friendly, upbeat musical group that performs everything from murder ballads to rousing blues to modern folk songs. Nich’s offers an array of coffee drinks made with local Rise Up coffee & pastries from Turnbridge Point as well as local craft beer and wine. There will also be a small silent auction featuring jewelry, scarves and other items from local artisans. Nich’s is located at 5 N. 3rd St. in Denton.
On Thursday, September 26, Tenchi in Greensboro will be hosting a Dine For A Child. Tenchi, winner of the 2018 Best in Business Rising Star Award, is a family- friendly restaurant offering everything from burgers and steaks to tacos and quesadillas, all made with the freshest local ingredients they can find. And don’t forget to try the “must-have” fried ice cream! Tenchi is open from 10am until 8pm and is located at 103 S. Main St. in Greensboro.
Participation in Dine For A Child events is very easy. Simply show up at the restaurant on the designated day and enjoy a delicious meal and/or beverage knowing that 10% of your purchase will be donated directly to CASA of Caroline. These funds will assist us in better serving the children and citizens of Caroline County.
CASA of Caroline works to ensure every abused and neglected child in Caroline County has a safe and stable home by giving them a voice in the system through a CASA (court appointed special advocate). The CASA’s we recruit, train and supervise assist the courts in protecting the best interests of every child in our community. In the 15 years since our inception, we have served over 150 children and recruited and trained over 100 volunteers who have donated over 75,000 hours of their own time. CASA of Caroline is unique in not only enriching the lives of the children we serve but also enriching the lives of our volunteers through the work they do. We are currently enrolling for our fall training class, scheduled to begin September 23.
