Cheers to Volunteers! – Kathy and Gary Bussing

Kathy and Gary Bussing make a fantastic philanthropic couple, and Jackson County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is very grateful to them for their time and talent. These longtime supporters have donated their efforts to the organization for the last 13 years. Kathy is a volunteer and former board member who has advocated for more than 28 CASA kids in 12 cases, and Gary is just now finishing up a board chairman term. The duo also has participated in fun events such as CARnival for CASA. Thanks to the Bussings!

Gary Bussing perfected his bubble-making skills at CARnival for CASA.
