Rumiano Cheese and Famliy Presents Listen to the Music
A night of bluegrass and fundraising for Butte and Glenn county CASA
The National Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is an organization developed to help children in the foster care system of the United States. With over 950 community organizations across the US, CASA aims to establish relationships with the foster care system, providing advocacy and support to children that would be otherwise without a voice in their life. Over 238,000 children have been influenced by CASA volunteers last year alone who have championed much needed social awareness of issues that plague the Foster Care system.
Pat Rumiano (John’s wife) is a Court Appointed Special Advocate of Glenn County in Northern California. Over the past 4 years, she has been an integral part of a child’s life, building a permanent relationship with the now 13 year old.
The Rumiano Family has supported and hosted a fundraiser event annually for the last 4 years in Willows, California. With guest speakers that are involved in CASA, and adults that experienced the system first hand as children. The event is often eye opening to the issues children often deal with in the foster care system.
It’s been known as “the CASA Benefit,” but has been officially named “Listen to the Music.” The event hosts a dinner and 2 band show. Bluegrass is a favorite of the Rumiano family and to spread the Bluegrass word there are two local California bands playing. We’ve got returning favorites “Snap Jackson and the Knock On Wood Players” and newcomers to the event “Front Country”, from Stockton and the Bay Area, respectively. Catered dinner and a silent auction are also on the menu, with tickets starting at $55.00, you can set your March 28th calendars as booked!
