Light of Hope

For more than ten years, CASA supporters across Northwest Arkansas have joined together to share our story and inspire others to join our movement. This special event and fundraiser is called Light of Hope presented by General Mills.

Light of Hope is unlike most special events:

  • It’s free.
  • It’s one hour (no, really).
  • It’s on a weekday.
  • It’s a breakfast or a lunch (no tux rental required!).
  • It’s auction free.

There are two dates/locations to choose from:


Light of Hope Breakfast

Location: John Q. Hammons Convention Center in Rogers

Keynote Speaker: Steve Bratspies, Executive Vice President & Chief Merchandising Officer, Walmart US


Light of Hope Lunch *sold out*

Date & Time: Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 12:00 PM

How do I sign up? Most of our guests are invited by a friend who serves as a table captain. But, if you don’t know anyone attending, don’t worry! Anyone can serve as a table captain. Table captains simply agree to fill the table with their colleagues, friends, and family. Tables are free and seat ten. Click here to learn more about becoming a table captain.

If you wish to serve as a table captain, attend the event, or inquire about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Colleen Smith.
