A popular show tradition, Business Wire's fundraiser mementos provide
Berkshire Hathaway shareholders with creative, limited-edition keepsakes
that mark the theme of the year's gathering.
For 2018, Business Wire offers a Berkshire Hathaway stainless steel
tumbler. The tumblers are available at Business Wire's booth at
Berkshire Hathaway's annual meeting in Omaha.
Proceeds are donated to CASA
for Douglas County, Nebraska (Court Appointed Special Advocates), a
charitable organization that trains, empowers and inspires volunteer
advocates to improve the lives of abused and neglected children. Each
year, Business Wire contributes $5,000 towards the effort and covers all
costs for the promotional items. The funds raised during the event will
support the recruitment and training of additional volunteers dedicated
to providing a voice for children in child welfare proceedings.
"For the 11 years we have proudly participated at the Berkshire annual
meeting, it has been our honor to contribute to a worthy cause such as
CASA. This year is our 12th anniversary as a Berkshire Hathaway company,
and we are thrilled to continue our tradition of supporting CASA for
Douglas County," said Geff
Scott, chief executive officer of usiness Wire.
CASA was established in the Omaha area in 1998 at the urging of area
judges. The idea of CASA first originated in the Seattle area, when a
juvenile court judge felt that he was not sufficiently informed about a
case involving a child. CASA was created under the premise that there
must be an advocate for children within the court system--someone who
will fight and keep the child's best interests at heart. It is the CASA
volunteer that helps judges make good decisions on behalf of these
"We are excited to partner with Business Wire for this event that brings
a host of individuals from around the world. Our hope is to expose as
many people as possible to the overwhelming need for volunteers in our
community. This year CASA for Douglas County will celebrate its 20th
anniversary and are on track to serve more children than ever before.
This event is a great opportunity to raise awareness while generating
much-needed funds to support advocates for children within the court
system. Every dollar that Business Wire raises ultimately helps
transform a child's future," said Kimberly Thomas, Executive Director of
CASA for Douglas County.
