Day of fun raises money for CASA

Posted: Updated:

MARION  -- Thousands of dollars were raised for a good cause Saturday.

The HUB in Marion teamed up with Inflatable Fun of Southern Illinois to host its annual fundraiser bash to raise money for CASA of Williamson County.

Those who came out had access to the HUB's facilities and about a dozen inflatable activities for kids.

Kids jumped around in bouncy houses and had a dip in the pool.

The fun event raised more than $6,700 for CASA.

"We have kids across Southern Illinois that need the services that CASA provides, my business is focused on bringing people happiness and fun and good times and it's a perfect charity to donate that money to," said Andrew Camarato, of Inflatable Fun of Southern Illinois.

Organizers say more than 600 people took part.
