The Masquerade is a fundraising event to benefit CASA In memory of Stacey J Plummer, who tragically lost her life to domestic violence on September 24th 2006.

Stacey J. Plummer was a strong, independent, well-educated, successful, professional woman and family lawyer with a passion for her family, friends, performing in her band, skiing, and many other interests. Stacey’s life was tragically and senselessly taken on September 24, 2006 as a result of domestic violence.

In 2013, Jeffrey and Tammy Plummer turned this most devastating tragedy into something positive for our community with the first The Many Faces of CASA Masquerade event. And now, at the 10th anniversary of Stacey’s passing, we are once again recognizing and sharing this tragedy to raise funds and awareness for CASA.
