Gingerbread casas for CASA

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Shoppers got into the holiday spirit this weekend to help a local charity. 

Dane County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) held their annual gingerbread house competition at Hilldale Mall.

Sunday, families could buy and decorate cookies, with all proceeds going to CASA, which provides services for children whose parents are in the court system.

"We currently are only able, through the funding that we have, to support about 20 to 25 percent of the kids who could use the support of a volunteer from CASA," Paul Cranley says.

The gingerbread houses will be on display through the holiday season. Organizers estimate they've raised more than $10,000 so far.
