Concert will benefit local foster children
Music will play for a good cause at the upcoming "Tractors, Trucks & Teddy Bears" concert.
The free country music concert, organized by the Aspen Meadow Band and scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday, June 16, will highlight the mission of CASA of Clackamas County. CASA, an abbreviation for court appointed special advocates, works with children who have been taken into protective custody because of abuse or neglect. Members of the mainly volunteer organization advocate for children in court while working to find safe and permanent homes for them.
Research by the National CASA Association has indicated that children who have CASAs received services that better met their needs, have higher academic performance and are less likely to return to the child welfare system.
The Aspen Meadow Band is happy to support the cause with the "Tractors, Trucks & Teddy Bears" event.
"We're so thankful and excited for our third annual country music concert for CASA of Clackamas County," said bandleader Matthew Senn. "Country music is all about family, home, and love, making it the perfect fit for our partnership with CASA. The work they do helping local foster kids is amazing, and we are honored to put on this concert each year."
This year's outdoor concert will take place at 24232 S. Upper Highland Road, Colton. All ages are welcome, and those interested are encouraged to dance during the show.
