CASA Breakfast Tomorrow


Twenty local businesses and groups have signed on as major sponsors for the second annual Benewah County Ray of Hope Breakfast.

The free breakfast, which is sponsored by Potlatch Corporation, is Friday at 7 a.m. at the St. Maries Eagles Lodge.

Morris & Wolff Law Offices and the Lloyd G. McCarter Legion Post joined the group of major sponsors this week.

“We have had a tremendous response from the business community and local groups,” Dan Hammes, who is helping organize the event, said. “Once again this community has stepped forward to help a great cause.”

All proceeds from the breakfast will be used to support CASA in Benewah County. CASA volunteers represent youngsters whose parents are involved in the court system. The breakfast will include a short program about CASA and the work their volunteers do in the community.

“We can’t say enough about Steve Henson and Potlatch. They stepped forward last year and sponsored the breakfast and agreed to do so again this year. That means everything we raise will go directly to our program,” Mr. Hammes said.

Other major sponsors for the breakfast are Hughes Ace Hardware, Sexton Road Contractors, Potlatch Credit Union, Hodge Funeral Home, Archie’s IGA, St. Joe Valley Credit Union, AmericanWest Bank, Ken’s Custom BoDY & Paint, the Gazette Record, Jack Buell Trucking, Paul Bunyan Days Commiteee, the Eagles Lodge, the Eagles Auxiliary, The Paperhouse, St. Maries Kiwanis Club, and Avista. Eimers’ Insurance is a participating sponsor.

“CASA has a great story to tell so we encourage as many people as possible to attend the breakfast,” Mr. Hammes said. “We will start serving before 7 a.m. so we can accommodate those who have to get to work following the program.”
