Beautiful. Impactful. Emotional. These words only begin to describe C.A.S.E.’s awe-inspiring Branching Out Gala event that more than 300 people enjoyed last week. All who attended enjoyed delicious food and a robust silent auction followed by a heartful and emotional program to honor our 2017 Stars of Adoption.
