Sullivan family celebrates 9th annual Casey’s Kicks fundraiser

News

SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV)– Casey’s Kicks 9th annual fundraiser was hosted at Crossroads Community Church Saturday evening.

The fundraiser was a way to give back to the community while celebrating the life of Casey. Casey passed away in a motorcycle accident in 2012. He was a fan of shoes or as he called them, kicks.

Those who attended the fundraiser enjoyed dinner, live music, and a silent auction for $10 a ticket. All proceeds collected were donated to Sullivan school corporations to provide shoes for children. The event raised almost $14,000 total. Casey’s mother and step-sister said this was a need in the community.

“As a family we wanted to come together and do something to help our community and keep his memory alive and Casey was a lover of shoes. Casey loved his shoes, like Casey was a shoe fanatic, so it just kind of all worked out together that this was a need in our community and it was a way for us to take something that was very difficult and a tragedy and turn it into something that was meaningful and purposeful, and to help others,” said Angie Wilson and Alison Lane.
