New Event, Event Update, New Program Newsletter and Staff Directory and eForm Update

New Event

We regularly host, sponsor and support a variety of events that provide community outreach, increase awareness of our program, help recruit new volunteers, raise funds and furnish training to our volunteer guardians ad litem. The following event was added to our calendar.

Event Update

An event sponsor for this year's CAII Cupcakes and Cookies for Kids has increased their donation.

Originally joining up as a bronze sponsor, Akerman LLP is now participating as a gold sponsor. They are supporting this fun and tasty event for the second year in a row.

In addition, three Tallahassee restaurants — Barnaby's Family Inn, Hopkins' Eatery and Newk's Eatery — have donated gift certificates to be given away as event prizes.

With proceeds benefiting the Second Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program, CAII Cupcakes and Cookies for Kids is a friendly annual competition for amateur and professional bakers and an opportunity for the public to raise money for our program by sampling the delicious results.

This year's competition is on Saturday, April 16, 2016 at the Florida Department of Transportation W. Haydon Burns Building Auditorium across from Cascades Park in Downtown Tallahassee.

Visit for complete details and to purchase tasting cards, enter the competition or register as a sponsor.

Thank you to Akerman, Barnaby's Family Inn, Hopkins' Eatery and Newk's Eatery for their support!
