  • 07/09/12--13:50: Little CASA Su CASA
  • Little CASA Su CASA is a fundraising initiative for the benefit of CASA Sarpy; a non-profit, volunteer-based organization in Sarpy County, Nebraska. CASA volunteers help children in the judicial system that have been abused and/or neglected.

    The Little CASA Su CASA program is centered around a playhouse design competition, but also includes a formal gala on 8/18/12 with awards ceremony and auction (both silent & live).

    ALL proceeds will go to CASA Sarpy to, hopefully, fund the purchase and renovation of their new "home" in Bellevue, NE.

    Perhaps you are looking for a playhouse for your children? Or, maybe you know of other families that might be in the market for a playhouse? Or, finally - maybe your company is interested in participating in the event and would like to reserve a table at the gala. If so, please go to www.littleCASAsuCASA.org and click on "Attend the gala" to download the registrationform.

    Currently, four amazing playhouses are underway. The night of the gala, there will be a silent auction, formal dinner, awards ceremony and live auction (of the playhouses). It would be great if you could join us and support this amazing cause. Thanks for your consideration.

    July 13, 2012 - Nearly $70,000 was raised at the 18th annual Lexus of Omaha's Champions for Marian Golf Tournament July 9 at Indian Creek Golf Course. The tournament benefits tuition assistance at Marian and is part of the Lexus Champions for Charity, a unique series of 200 charity golf tournaments throughout the United States.

    Following golf, the event culminated with a dinner, program and oral auction sponsored by Mickey Anderson, President of Lexus of Omaha and his sister, Angie Anderson Quinn, 1987 Marian graduate.

    Tom Nichting, parent of a Marian alum, made the highest bid in the tournament auction to attend the 2012 Lexus Champions for Charity National Championship at Pebble Beach Golf Links, The Links at Spanish Bay and the Spyglass Hill Golf Course in Pebble Beach, Calif., in December.

    Creighton Men's Head Basketball Coach Greg McDermott and wife, Theresa, attended the event and donated a basketball signed by McDermott and son Doug, Creighton player and first team All-American.

    Since 1996, Marian has maintained a consecutive partnership with Lexus of Omaha, the official sponsor of the Champions for Marian Golf Tournament, which has grossed more than $800,000 to provide tuition assistance to Marian students who are in need.

    Scott Searl and Jim Buser,current Marian parents, co-chaired the tournament.

    The tournament was started by the late Tal Anderson, who sponsored the event for 14 years and Anderson's son Mickey and daughter Angie are carrying on his legacy.

    The Anderson's support for Marian will be particularly noted when in 2013 the Mary Joy and Tal Anderson Performing Arts Center opens at Marian.
