TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Wednesday night was all about people who give their time to children in Vigo County.

Court Appoint Special Advocates were honored at the CASA Gala.

The volunteers help children through the juvenile court system.

The gala highlights the work they do throughout the year.

"You're coming in in a disaster situation...at the worst time in a family's life. And trying to advocate for that child...it's a very difficult volunteer opportunity," CASA State Director Leslie Dunn said.

Many Vigo County children are still in need of CASA volunteers.
