Court Appointed Special Advocates of Kendall County will host two events in April in honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month.

At noon April 3, the Hands Around the Courthouse ceremony will feature guest speakers Kendall County Undersheriff Bobby J. Richardson and State’s Attorney Eric Weis. A pinwheel garden in front of the Kendall County Courthouse will represent each abused or neglected child CASA Kendall County has advocated for in the past year.

CASA’s “A Night at the Derby” gala will be April 29, presented by the Pederson family and hosted by Brighter Daze Farm. This event will include dinner, open bar, live auction, entertainment and dancing. Registration and sponsorships are available at
