ABOUT THE EVENT
Co-Chairs Jenny Kropko, Mike Kropko, Bill Sailer, and Dale Yahnke came together on Monday, June 12, 2023, for the 30th Annual Fostering Hope Golf Classic. Hosted at a private country club in La Jolla, golfers enjoyed an 18-hole tournament followed by a cocktail reception and awards ceremony featuring opportunities to learn about our Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program in support of the more than 3,500 children in San Diego County foster care.
A legacy of supporting youth in foster care
In 1993, CASA volunteer Jack Harrison organized the Fostering Hope golf tournament to marry his two passions: making an impact in the lives of children in San Diego's foster care system and golfing with his friends. As a CASA, Jack worked with eight children in the dependency court system. Although his cases were often the most difficult, he took on each one with compassion and enthusiasm. Jack began serving on Voices for Children's Board of Directors in 1993 and was slated to be Chair in 1996, the year he passed away.
