Parcon to Sponsor and Sara Van Dusen to Co-Chair 2022 Friends of CASA Holiday Luncheon and Fashion Show

Parcon is honored to again sponsor the 2022 Friends of CASA (FOCASA) Holiday Luncheon and Fashion Show at VEA Newport Beach on December 8.

Parcon Managing Partner, Sara Van Dusen will co-chair the event alongside Sarah Minakary. Funds raised at the Holiday Luncheon go directly towards CASA OC’s mission of providing desperately needed one-on-one mentoring and powerful court authorized advocacy to the most abused, neglected and abandoned children in our local foster care system. There are currently over 3,450 children in the Orange County child welfare system and 260 children in foster care who are waiting for a CASA.

Sara says, “I am honored to serve in this role alongside my dear friend Sarah. The FOCASA Holiday Luncheon is an important reminder of the work CASA is doing to make a difference in the lives of so many children. Research shows that children who are assigned a CASA volunteer report significantly higher levels of hope - which in turn is linked to numerous positive outcomes. I am grateful for Sarah, our incredible committee, CASA OC, Lafayette 148, and our generous donors and sponsors for coming together to raise critical funds to support CASA’s mission of providing these youth with a mentor and advocate.”

Parcon has been a proud sponsor of the Luncheon, and Sara has served on the FOCASA Board of Directors, and on the event’s executive committee for several years. Account Director Nicole Inal served as Luncheon co-chair in 2021, and serves on the FOCASA Board of Directors as well as the executive committee. Parcon Account Manager Corinne Sheehan has also served on the Luncheon’s executive committee for several years.

The Orange County Business Journal ranked the luncheon as Orange County’s second Top Luncheon by net revenue in 2021.
