HERMISTON — An enchanted French-themed dinner and dance will raise money for the local Court Appointed Special Advocate program.

An Evening in Paris transports people to the “City of Love” with a lovely plated dinner and a dueling piano show. In addition, people will have an opportunity to show support for local foster children in the community.

The gala fundraising event is Saturday, Feb. 24 from 6-10 p.m. at the Hermiston Community Center, 415 S. Highway 395. General admission is $40 per person and VIP seats are $75 each. Tickets are available at Umatilla Morrow County Head Start, 110 N.E. Fourth St., Hermiston or www.umchs.com/donate.

Money raised from the event will go toward training, education and recruitment of CASA volunteers. Not every child in the community has someone there to speak on their behalf. As advocates, CASA volunteers help provide a voice for foster children, as well as providing guidance and support.

For more information, contact Briana Montano at 541-564-6878 or bmontao@umchs.org.
