Kirk Fisher also plays in Better than Nobody, a band that performs at a variety of charitable events, including the Casas for CASA playhouse raffle hosted by the Louisiana chapter of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).

CASA operates with the mission of providing children involved in legal proceedings involving abuse or neglect with a court appointed special advocate volunteer. Advocates provide support, speak up on behalf of foster children in court, and help secure permanent and secure homes for children in foster care. Louisiana currently offers 18 programs in 55 parishes, including Northeast Louisiana, New Orleans, and the Capital Area of Baton Rouge.

East Baton Rouge Parish’s Casas for CASA fundraiser is designed to raise public awareness and provide funding for Capital Area CASA Association programs. The fundraiser consists of three summer events that include a playhouse raffle, a silent auction fiesta, and the Kids Day safety and wellness fair. Its central event involves a playhouse raffle featuring an original luxury playhouse as the grand prize. Raffle periods last three weeks, and the Mall of Louisiana displays the year’s playhouse prize until the raffle’s conclusion.
