Inverness Lodge’s Sweetheart Ball was held to support the Citrus Abuse Shelter Association (CASA). The lodge was beautifully decorated and served a gourmet meal created by PER Mike Wagenblast. CASA’s CEO, Sunshine Arnold, was present and received a donation of $1,000 to benefit her organization.

CASA is a private, nonprofit organization incorporated May 2, 1983, with a mission to empower victims of domestic violence to become independent. CASA provides shelter, safety, intervention, and education to victims and the community for social change.
