Help victims transform their lives

The joy of transformation!  Winter is finally giving way to spring, and before you know it, we will be enjoying the beauty of summer and LACASA’s 15th Annual Garden Tour, set for Saturday and Sunday, July 13 and 14, 2013.

Each garden will feature something unique this year—from artists painting on canvas to musicians performing live among the lush surroundings.

We invite you to sponsor this event. Last year’s tour had more than 1,550 visitors. Proceeds from this fundraising event enabled us to provide comprehensive services—at no charge—for victims of interpersonal violence. Your support helped victims bloom and grow into a new life.
