Your opportunity to enjoy an evening of wine tasting at the Axis Winery is Salado, Texas while supporting a great charity is happening on Saturday, December 4.



Casa's Kris Kringle fundraiser is set for December 4, and offers delicious wines and a chance to bid on some great items.

The best part: $5 from each ticket sold and 100% of the proceeds from all the great auction items will benefit CASA. (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children)

Kevin Kyle, Executive Director of CASA of Bell and Coryell Counties, tells us there will be 5 baskets to raffle off. The value of the baskets range from $50 to $600, and include a BBQ Basket valued at $50, a $100 coffee basket, $100 lotto ticket basket, $500 great outdoors basket, and $600 technology basket.

Many of the baskets will have actual values MUCH HIGHER than the announced amounts. CASA board members have graciously donated these baskets to benefit CASA.
