Advocate staff report

The playhouse up for grabs in this year’s Casas for CASA fundraiser is a beauty that would settle gracefully in a kid-sized New Orleans neighborhood.

On Saturday, you can inspect the double-gallery showpiece, valued at $17,000, at the Mall of Louisiana on Bluebonnet, where it will be on display until the winning raffle ticket is pulled at 5 p.m. Aug. 11. You can buy a $5 ticket at the mall, online at casabr.org or at the CASA office, 848 Louisiana Ave.

All proceeds from the playhouse raffle go to Capital Area CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) Association, a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains and supports community volunteers who act on behalf of abused and neglected children in East Baton Rouge Parish who need a safe and permanent home.

CASA will deliver the playhouse to the winner’s driveway within 60 miles of the Mall of Louisiana.
