OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, July 6, 2020 (CASA of Oklahoma County) – CASA of Oklahoma County has declared July 10th as Family Game Night for Oklahoma County. As Oklahoma City imposes revised restrictions to protect public health, CASA staff wanted to help raise community morale with some fun and games that can be played at social distance or in quarantine. The idea was inspired by CASA’s annual fundraiser, Game On with CASA, which features a multitude of fun minute-to-win-it style games. CASA’s next Game On will be held May 25th, 2021, having been cancelled this year due to the pandemic.
Games from Game On were repurposed to create Family Game Night game packs downloadable at CASA’s website, okcountycasa.org/ playgames
“With our two major fundraisers both cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, CASA has been working on several web-friendly fundraisers to continue raising operational funds,” said Charlie Ludden, CASA’s Development Manager. “Game Night provides a little levity for families and other social units who are isolating together to reduce community spread.”
CASA’s free-to-download Lite Game Night Pack includes three fun games to play with family and friends. Ludden said that those who want to turn up the fun can make a contribution through CASA’s Game Night webpage and receive an emailed link to download the full 10-game fun pack. Donations to CASA’s Game Night help to provide consistent volunteer advocates for Oklahoma County foster youth.
Ludden said that CASA volunteers are needed now more than ever: “Despite these challenging times, CASA’s advocates continue to serve - in order to ensure safety and permanency is achieved as soon as possible for these children.”
The Game Night packets will be available to download throughout the month of July.
