Men in Tights is an annual fundraiser for NCK CASA, an organization that, with the help of volunteers, works with children who are in the court system because they have been the victims of child abuse and/or neglect.
Some children are in the home with the parent or guardian receiving services, such as counseling, case management, visitation, transportation or housing assistance.
Saturday's program starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at area banks and also will be sold at the door.
