In cooperation with the Octoberfest Parade in Ravenswood and Parchment Valley Conference Center in Ripley, CASA is hosting their Motorcycle Marble Run Fundraiser on Saturday, October 2, 2010. Motorcycle riders begin their day in Ravenswood, with the option of riding as one of the lead units in the Octoberfest Parade. They will then visit the Riverside Park as their first stop on the Marble Run, and continue across the Ohio River to further stops in Ohio and West Virginia. Their next to last stop will be at the Parchment Valley Conference Center, where refreshments and photo opportunities will be available. Then, riders will head back to Ravenswood for their last stop, and have the chance to further enjoy the activities of Octoberfest!
CASA is Court Appointed Special Advocates for children. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in an inappropriate group or foster home. They stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence—the one adult who cares only for them.
Page Thomas of A Page Photography and Ron Gaskins of West Virginia Fine Photography provided photo coverage of the CASA Motorcycle Marble Run. In addition, we did on location portraits of the riders and their machines when they stopped at the Parchment Valley stop. If you see photos you would like, you may purchase them directly through this website. If you have any questions, just go back to the home [Ronald Gaskins] page, and click on the email link.
