“It was an easy decision when selecting our two honored couples this year for the CASA gala, Executive Director Gloria Bunce stated in the release. “They are people in our community who go above and beyond in support of our most vulnerable youth in our community. When we request support they don’t hesitate, and quickly ask when and how soon – not let me think about it.”
