Baylor Theta is proud to welcome you to CASA Cookout and Concert supporting CASA of McLennan County! CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates.

CASAs are essential in helping a child thrive and they act as a voice for the child in the courtroom. It is a gift that we have a CASA so close by and are able to impact our immediate Waco community in this way, but we cannot do it without your help!
Proceeds will also benefit Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose vision is to give every Theta an opportunity to make a difference.
