Thanks to all of our helpers from Friday evening's 2019 Cheers for CASA wine & beer tasting event. 

Thank you to everyone who attended CASA Connection's 2019 Cheers for CASA wine & beer tasting fundraiser held Friday, March 29.

The event was held at Henry on 11th which is a building full of history in downtown Columbus.

Guests enjoyed samples of various red and white wines, white sangria & beers provided by Granite City Brewery, Upstream Brewing Company and Gottberg Brewery. Along with the beverages appetizers such as smoked salmon, cheeses, meatballs and small desserts including raspberry mousse were included. Everyone who attended seemed to have a good time and declared it a hit and something to look forward to next year.
