The ninth annual CASA Bluegrass Breakdown not only raised funds for area children, but awareness for the issues they face.
The Saturday evening event went well, raising around $8,000 including corporate sponsors, according to CASA Director Renee Tackett.
The Department of Children’s Services had a foster/ adoption booth set up to provide information for anyone who was interested.
“I feel that it did raise awareness. The community effort was strong and the response was big,” Tackett said.
