Pasadena resident and NBC4 anchor Colleen Williams will host her 22nd annual Charity Golf Tournament to benefit Casa Treatment Center on Monday, June 19, at San Gabriel Country Club. Over the years, the event has raised more than $1 million for Pasadena-based Casa, which provides women struggling with addiction the opportunity to transform their lives.
Leah Rodemich, Casa’s executive director, expressed the organization’s appreciation for Williams’ support through the years. “We are so grateful for the many years of service that Colleen and her family have given to Casa,” Rodemich said. “As a result of their efforts, we have raised more than $1 million, which has enabled us to provide affordable residential, outpatient, day treatment and sober living services to hundreds of women each year.”
An award-winning journalist for three decades, Williams has received numerous industry honors, including multiple Emmy and Golden Mike awards.
Casa (former Casa de las Amigas) was founded in 1967 and was one of the first treatment centers in the country to focus on women. “Casa has been on the forefront of providing professionally supervised alcohol and drug treatment and has been ahead of the curve in providing those services specifically to address the unique needs of women,” a Casa spokesperson said.
Golf tournament registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and the event culminates with a dinner and live auction. Tournament sponsorships are available starting at $2,500. To register online, visit casatreatmentcenter.org. For further information, contact Ava Alexandar at (626) 792-2770.
