Anna & Corey Linsley to be Wisconsin CASA Spokespeople, The pair will be featured in 2018 PSA
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, January 17, 2018
(Green Bay, WI) The Wisconsin CASA Association has announced that Anna and Corey Linsley will be statewide spokespeople for the organization. The name Corey Linsley will be instantly recognized by Green Bay Packers fans as the team’s center. Anna is known locally for her work as a certified yoga instructor. The couple will make their official debut as spokespeople in a PSA that will air across the state during the first quarter of 2018. The Linsley’s became CASA volunteers in 2017.
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. CASAs are specially trained volunteers who are paired with children who find themselves in the court system through no fault of their own; primarily due to abuse or neglect. These children are often in the Foster Care system.
“We are thrilled to welcome Corey and Anna to Wisconsin CASA,” said Sue Schwartz, Wisconsin CASA Executive Director. “What is especially wonderful, is that they are more than just spokespeople, they are actual CASAs, so they know what it takes and what a difference CASAs make in the lives of children. Hopefully, by sharing their story, it will encourage others to volunteer as well.” Studies show that children paired with a CASA spend an average of eight months less in Foster Care and they’re more likely to succeed in school.
“Corey and I believe this is an outstanding program; a program that can make a profound
difference in the lives of children as well as communities,” said Anna Linsley. Corey Linsley
added, “You might not realize that these children are all around us in our communities, from the children you might see in the grocery store, to your child’s classmate or a neighbor. Anna and I like being CASA volunteers because we get to know the kids, spend time with them and make a positive impact in their lives.”
Wisconsin CASA currently serves 11 Wisconsin counties. In 2016, roughly 6,400 Wisconsin
children were in need of a CASA volunteer; however only 690 children could be helped due to a lack of volunteers and a need to expand programs throughout the state. To find out more about Wisconsin CASA, locate the program nearest you, or how to become a volunteer, please visit wisconsin-casa.org
