Crooners event raises $60k for children’s advocates

Last Saturday’s Crooners for CASA fundraiser at The Commons raised nearly $60,000 to aid abused and neglected children in the area.

Rick Scalf, spokesman for Court Appointed Special Advocates, says that 8 teams took part in the karaoke and performance event and 350 people turned out to watch the teams participate.

Teams competed for the grand prize by raising money and this year’s winner was a tie between “Rockin Rossetti and his Homerun Hotties” and a team called “3 American Idol Finalists.”
