Pioneer stands with Dallas Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and supports their conviction that all children deserve a safe home and a loving family. Together, these organizations hope to create communities that are free from the cycle of abuse and neglect.
CASA was created in 1977 by a Seattle Superior Court judge who appointed community volunteers to work on behalf of abused and neglected youth coming through his child welfare court. These volunteers provided the much-needed insight about the circumstances underlying each child’s situation. Today, Dallas judges also appoint advocates for similarly neglected children to get them into safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible.
Pioneer has been a longtime supporter of Dallas CASA in a variety of ways, including sponsoring their annual Parade of Playhouses fundraiser at NorthPark Center in Dallas where children’s playhouses are built, displayed and raffled off.
In 2012, Pioneer teamed up with Archon Group, L.P. (now Goldman Sachs) to co-host the annual Dallas CASA Classic invitational golf tournament at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas. The event, which began in 1998, has become the highest grossing one-day charity tournament in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. In 2014, the Dallas CASA Classic netted more than $1.7 million. Read more about that event, which also included AT&T as an event co-host, in the event news release.
Dallas CASA serves 1,750 children annually through the help of more than 650 volunteer advocates, but there is still work to be done. More than half of the children in protective services are still in need of a CASA volunteer.
At the helm of Pioneer’s success is a knowledgeable and experienced management team and Board of Directors.
