This is a big week for Business Wire as our team heads to our parent company, Berkshire Hathaway’s annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska. For the last seven years, Business Wire has used attendance at the annual conference as a platform to raise funds for CASA, a charitable organization that provides a voice for abused and neglected children within the court system via trained citizen volunteers. This year is no different.
For 2014, Business Wire is raising money by selling original Berkshire Hathaway Sluggers baseball pennants, available for $7 each or two for $10.
“For seven years we have proudly participated at the Berkshire annual meeting while helping out with a worthy cause like CASA. In the spirit of this year’s baseball theme we will take our metaphorical seventh-inning stretch by contributing to charity,” said Cathy Baron Tamraz, chairwoman and chief executive officer of Business Wire.
Douglas County Nebraska CASA was established in 1998 at the urging of area judges. CASA was created under the premise that there must be an advocate for children within the court system–someone who will fight and keep the child’s best interests at heart. It is the CASA volunteer that helps judges make good decisions on behalf of these abused children.
“What a great opportunity to raise awareness while generating much-needed funds to support advocates for children within the court system. Every dollar that Business Wire raises ultimately helps transform a child’s future,” said Kimberly Thomas, Executive Director of CASA for Douglas County.
