KISS helps CASA

Paul Stanley, rhythm guitarist and co-lead vocalist of the rock band KISS, recently donated $5,000 to CASA of the Tennessee Valley. Ray Scott, a former attorney for KISS and a CASA advocate, along with Mandi Wolfe, Loudon County program coordinator, wrote a letter requesting a donation from KISS to help fund the cost of training CASA volunteers. Scott presented the check Jan. 8 to the local CASA.
