Barnes & Noble Hosts Book-tober Fair to Benefit Washoe CASA Foundation
Event Dates and Times
The Washoe CASA Foundation will hold its inaugural Book-tober Fair at Barnes & Noble in Reno, Nev. to raise funds benefiting foster care children in Washoe County.
From October 18-November 1, 2017, Barnes & Noble will contribute a percentage of sales to the Washoe CASA Foundation. Sales include books, merchandise, and Starbucks coffee, cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory and other food items from the Barnes & Noble Cafe. All shoppers need to do is mention CASA at checkout.
People can also support the Washoe CASA Foundation by shopping online at www.bn.com/bookfairs from October 18-November 6, 2017 and include the Book-tober Fair voucher ID #12200952 on the payment page during checkout.
The Barnes & Noble Book-tober Fair will help the Washoe CASA Foundation underwrite expenses for the benefit of foster care children in Washoe County. There are currently more than 900 children in foster care in Washoe County and approximately 100 CASA volunteers. CASAs are Court Appointed Special Advocates for the Second Judicial District Court’s CASA Program.
After training, CASA volunteers are empowered directly by the courts to offer judges critical information they need to ensure that a child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care. CASA volunteers add great value to the team of professionals working on behalf of these children and are among the most informed people in our community about the needs of abused and neglected children. These children are better served by the juvenile court when CASA volunteers are available to speak on a child’s behalf.
The Book-tober Fair will showcase a series of family-friendly events including seven collectable buttons, storytime, a variety of arts & crafts and Halloween costume parades and contests. A full schedule is here: https://washoecasafoundation.com/event/book-tober-fair/
The Reno Pops Orchestra starts its "Season of Adventure” with a free family-friendly night of goblins, ghouls, and other fantastical, musical tricks and treats. Come in costume and join the costume parade. More info: www.renopops.org
