The CASA playhouse raffle is starting earlier than usual this year.

Beginning Aug. 1, downtown Franklin eateries Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant and Puckett’s Boat House will begin selling raffle tickets to win the Williamson County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)’s 2018 playhouse.

CASA is a nonprofit organization that provides volunteers to advocate in court on behalf of children who have been in situations of neglect or abuse.

Through October, diners will be able to purchase a raffle ticket for just $10 from either restaurant to be entered in the drawing to win the playhouse. Tickets are normally sold for $20, but A. Marshall Hospitality, the parent company of Puckett’s, will cover the remaining $10 for each ticket purchased.

Designed by Darla Spears with ‘Defined, by Darla’, this year’s playhouse will be heavily influenced by the recent revival of mid-century modern trends and architecture. Valued at $6,000, the 60 sq. ft. playhouse is currently being constructed by Franklin Firefighters’ Charities for the fourth year in a row.

“Unfortunately, Williamson Counties’ population of abused and neglected children is growing,
which means that CASA has to grow as well in order to serve these kids to the best of our
abilities,” said Susan Reinfeldt, Director of Development at CASA. “We’re expecting to help over
700 children in 2018 alone, and this fundraiser provides crucial funds for CASA to continue
supporting them in a meaningful way.”

All proceeds from raffle ticket sales will benefit CASA, and the winner will be drawn on the Puckett’s stage at 2 p.m. on October 26.

“Puckett’s and Puckett’s Boat House make it so easy to support CASA and purchase a ticket
simply by adding it to your bill,” Reinfeldt said. “The playhouse raffle is one of two major
fundraisers that we have all year, and your support truly makes a positive impact on children in
our own community.”

In addition to Puckett’s Gro., the 2018 Williamson County CASA Playhouse campaign is supported by Twice Daily, Little Sprouts Sale, Cameron Properties, Coyne Orthodontics, Franklin Realtors, R.G. Custom Homes, John Floyd Foundation, and Henry Drilling.
