Lauri, has dedicated 14 years to CASA for kids giving not only of herself and her time but financially as well. She has committed herself to improving the lives and circumstances of children in need. The executive director of CASA found it difficult to say just a few things about Lauri and her time with CASA, I think she could have filled a book singing Lauri’s praises.
