Lori Cope, the executive director of CASA (the Court-Appointed Special Advocates) of Hunt County says the organization received $17,000 in contributions from the North Texas Giving Day last year, and hopes to do at least as well this year. CASA volunteers advocate for children in the foster-care system. North Texas Giving Day is officially Sept. 23, but online contributions can already be made.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
