Towson, Md. (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

Maryland CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Association will present Sunsets & Safe Harbors, its third annual fundraising gala to benefit children in foster care, Saturday, September 6, at 6:30 p.m., aboard the USS Constellation at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Chaired by Angela Lunczynski-Hamilton, Board Member for Maryland CASA, and procurement director for Coca-Cola Refreshments, the event will feature dinner, dancing and spectacular views of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, with a special canon firing at sunset.

“We are so excited to be holding this year’s event at such a unique venue. I feel like we’ll all be playing tourist in our town, enjoying a Baltimore monument, while supporting Maryland’s foster childen,” said Angela Lunczynski-Hamilton. “So many people have talked about how excited they are to dance on the deck of the Constellation, saying they had never been on board or hadn’t seen the ship since their last elementary school field trip!”

Guests can enjoy cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and a dinner buffet prepared by Absolutely Perfect Catering. Adding to the fun will be music from DJ Kevin Silate and a silent auction offering the chance to bid on dining, entertainment, sports and travel items.

Event proceeds will be used to help Maryland’s children in the foster care system find safe and permanent homes. Last year, more than 1,400 CASA volunteers served more than 1,500 children in Maryland. But with 10,000 children under court protection, 9 out of 10 of them have no advocate speaking up for their best interests.

Tickets include admission, food, drinks and entertainment. The cost is $75 per person before August 1, or $85 per person afterward. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit http://www.MarylandCASA.org or call 410-828-6761 or 888-833-2272.
