Holiday World donates $74K to CASASeptember 26, 2019
From Local Sources
SANTA CLAUS — Holiday World kicked off Happy Halloween Weekends in a way that would make even a goblin grin.
After technical difficulties threatened to interfere with normal operations, the park opened over the weekend with limited operations and a $10 gate admission to be donated to local charities.
More than $74,000 was generated from gate admission, all of which will be shared among local CASA — Court-Appointed Special Advocates — chapters in Dubois, Perry, and Spencer counties.
Dubois County CASA Executive Director Deena Hubler said, “This donation will bless kids for years to come.”
As an organization, CASA works to mobilize, train and empower volunteers who make a difference by helping judges make informed decisions about what is best for the child’s future.
“When we realized we were having technical difficulties that would keep us from operating as normal, we decided instead of shutting down the park, that it would be an opportunity to do something good,” said Holiday World Director of Communications Leah Koch.
