This year's non-profit organization selected for the BBQ, Bands and Bottle Rockets Charity Spotlight was CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and $6,000 was donated to the organization from money raised at the Fourth of July event.

“The mission of CASA for the Cross Timbers Area is to ensure that abused and neglected children secure a permanent, nurturing environment, while working to meet the ongoing needs of the whole child,” the CASA website states. “We accomplish this through recruiting, training and supporting community volunteers who advocate for the best interests of these children in the court system.”
