“CASA Uncorked” Fundraiser a Success


Cass County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program received a huge round of support from the Cass County community at large on April 22, 2016. The CASA Uncorked Wine and Beer tasting event was held at Slattery Vintage Estates in Nehawka, NE.

The fundraiser committee was chaired by Nikki Biesterfeld and Michelle Group. It was the organizations major fundraising event of the year. Approximately 105 people attended the “CASA Uncorked” event which generated more than $6500 profit from community sponsorships, ticket sales and donations to the organization. All proceeds from this event, benefit the Cass County CASA Program, a donor-supported volunteer organization whose mission is to offer court-approved volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children. Cass County CASA I a 501©3 organization funded by public and private donations, grants and KENO funds. The evening’s festivities included several games including Puncha Bunch and Heads & Tails bead game. Barb Wagner was the winner of the Puncha Bunch. Her prize was a Wheel barrel of Booze. The winner of the Heads & Tails game was Chris Westover whom received a basket donated by Hy-vee. The Dettmer family was the highest bidders from the basket donated by Midwest Hop Producers, LLC. Roy Hudson owner of Hudsker BBQ provided delicious BBQ meal. The Silver Wings Band was the event’s entertainment.

Cass County CASA works with children, whom are abused, neglected and often find themselves lost in the court system. CASA advocates are appointed by the Judge. The advocates build a relationship with a child and speak on the child’s behalf as they make recommendations to the court. The following snippet sums up what CASA is really about: “I am for the child who’s had seven addresses in a single year. Because she is in foster care. Because her Father abused her. Because her Mother could not believe her. That is the child I am for. Because if I am, she will be half as likely to languish in foster care, and that much more likely to find a safe, permanent home. I am a volunteer child Advocate.”

Since April 2015, 16 volunteers and two staff have advocated for 48 children. Six children have been adopted and 15 children have been reunified with their parents. 26 more children cases have been opened. Through the efforts of its volunteers, Cass County CASA has saved the county approximately $22,150. Special “Thanks” to the events Diamond sponsors: Scotty and Heidi Cline, Team Tenacious with Keller Williams. Other major sponsors were Fast Grass (W-M Farms), Johnson & Johnson (John Harper), Absolute Healthcare & Esthetics, Dr. Tina ScottMordhorst, Fontanelle Hybrids (Jason Zoz), Iske Crop Insurance (Rick Iske), Lipstick Stain Boutique, Louisville Family Dental, McCaul Homes, Pinnacle Bank, Reinsch, Slattery, Bear, & Minahan,P.C., The Law Offices of Johnson & Pekny, LLC, Wade Insurance (Diane Wade), Waterford at Woodbridge, Hy-Vee and Midwest Hop Producers, LLC, were other business participating in sponsoring the event.

Help patients, honor loved ones by donating blood with the Red Cross

Before busy summer schedules set in, the American Red Cross urges eligible donors to roll up a sleeve to help ensure a sufficient supply for patients in need.

Donors of all blood types are needed now to help accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those receiving cancer treatment.

Kenneth Reed gives blood in his son’s honor. When Trace was 8 days old, he underwent heart surgery and received blood transfusions. “It’s the least I can do. If it wasn’t for donors, he wouldn’t be here with us today,” said Reed. “I don’t call it donating blood; I call it donating life.”

Giving blood is an easy and thoughtful way to honor a loved one who has relied on blood products, to follow in the example of a family member who gives regularly or to simply help others.

As a thank you, those who come out to donate May 26-30 will receive a Red Cross-branded visor, while supplies last. Make an appointment to donate blood by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Donors can then also visit redcrossblood.org/cedarfair to enter to win one of three grand prize packages for four to Knott’s Berry Farm in California or Cedar Point in Ohio.

Upcoming blood donation opportunities:

“The Man Who Came to Dinner” at Lofte Theatre
mantodinner
Pictured:  Front, Brenda Jones, Aubree Sweeney, Ken Snyder.  Back, Doug Rothgeb, Tim Sorensen, Trish Miller and Rosalie Duffy. 
The Lofte's second production of the year takes us back to small-town Ohio in the 1930s.  Sheridan Whiteside ("Sherry" to his friends) is a famously outlandish New York City radio personality who has been invited to dine at the home of the well-to-do Stanley family.  But disaster strikes before he enters the house.  Whiteside slips on the ice and injures his hip! 
What started out as a one-night event soon turns into a month-long convalescence.  Confined to the house, Sherry drives his hosts mad by viciously insulting them, monopolizing their house, running up large phone bills, and receiving many bizarre guests, including paroled convicts.  
This classic American script has enjoyed several revivals on Broadway and the London stage and was made into a feature film in 1942 starring Bette Davis, Jimmy Durante and Monty Woolly.   
Ken Snyder of Elmwood is playing the irascible Sheridan Whiteside.  He is joined on stage by Brenda Jones (Louisville) and Tim Sorensen (Elmwood) playing his hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Stanley.  Rosalie Duffy (Lincoln) and Doug Rothgeb (Omaha) play the star-crossed Maggie Cutler and Bert Jefferson. Rounding out the cast are Dustin Reckling (Louisville), Jean Wymore (Syracuse), Jessica and Rita McKinney, Ken Patry and Trish Miller (Omaha), Cheryl and Will Jones (Manley), Tom Lucas (Papillion), Jeff Johnston (Elmwood), Mike Brown (Firth), Jim Skrobo (Elkhorn), Aubree Sweeney and Millard Carnes (Plattsmouth),  Guillermo Rosas (La Vista), Zeke Rouse (Murray), Brenna Thompson, Nick Roth (Lincoln), John Bell and Dan Roberg (Omaha) and Shawn Reynolds (Bellevue).  The production is directed by Kevin Colbert.
"The Man Who Came to Dinner" runs June 2-4 and 8-11.  Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are at 7pm.  Sunday performances begin at 2pm.  Those interested in tickets may call the box office at 402-234-2553 or visit Lofte.org for online purchasing.  All seats are reserved and ticket price is $19.
