Zeta Theta Chapter members of Kappa Alpha Theta (KAT) at Cal Poly recently raised $4,800 in donations for CASA of San Luis Obispo County at its annual Burritos for CASA event during Cal Poly’s homecoming weekend.

In 1989, the fraternity adopted CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) as its national philanthropy, said Cathy Orton, CASA’s resource development director. The chapter members also lend their support by interning, hosting events or assisting with fundraisers for CASA.
