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 the 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 rentals!).
  • It’s auction-free.
There are two dates/locations to choose from:
Lunch *sold out*

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.

If you wish to serve as a table captain, attend the event, or otherwise sponsor, please contact Colleen Smith, or 479-725-2213.
