CASA of Mercer and Burlington Plans “Stand Up for a Child 2016” A Night of Comedy to Benefit Children in Out of Home Placement


Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children of Mercer and Burlington Counties is hosting “Stand Up for a Child,” a night of comedy featuring A-List Comedians Kate Wolff and Joe DeVito! This night of laughter will be held on Saturday, October 15th at the Deerwood Country Club in Westampton, NJ from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.  “Stand Up for a Child” will feature a sumptuous cocktail hour and buffet dinner, exciting silent and live auctions and of course, amazing comedy performances.

This will be a special night, and revenue raised will be used to enhance CASA’s efforts to recruit, screen and train new volunteers to benefit the children they serve in Mercer and Burlington Counties. Although a number of companies are generously sponsoring this “Stand Up for a Child” event, lead sponsors include Investor’s Bank, the Medford, NJ based firm of Conner Strong & Buckelew, and the Law Offices of Louis Guzzo, Haddonfield,NJ.  

CASA for Children of Mercer and Burlington Counties recruits trains and supervises community volunteers, appointed by the Family Court, to advocate for the best interests of children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect.  These dedicated volunteers strive to ensure the emotional, physical and educational well-being of these vulnerable children while they reside in foster homes or residential facilities.  The ultimate goal of a CASA volunteer is to help establish a safe, stable and permanent home for each child they serve.

A limited number of tickets are still available; individual tickets are $125 each. Tickets for a table of 8 are $920, and a table for 10 guests is $1,100.  Tickets may be purchased online by visiting   For more information, contact Katherine Carmichael, Executive Director, at 609-434-0050 or
