The wait is over…the Adoption STAR Family Tree is unveiled!

The official unveiling of the Adoption STAR Family Tree happened at our Open House on 3/13/13.  Michele Fried had the honor of pulling back the red curtain so attendees could see the tree in all of its glory. Development Associate Kristin Ackerman presented Michele with a leaf that was purchased by Adoption STAR staff. The leaf reads, “In honor of Michele Fried, our guiding star.”  Michele and one of the children in attendance at the Open House worked together to affix the leaf to the tree, which brought smiles and great applause from everyone watching on. A big THANK YOU to everyone that has contributed to the tree to date.

The Adoption STAR Family Tree is an ongoing fundraiser, meaning that you can donate to Adoption STAR and have a leaf (or acorn, stone or tree root) inscribed with a message of your choice AT ANY POINT IN TIME.  Click HERE to donate now!  For more information regarding the tree, contact Kristin Ackerman at 716-639-3900 or e-mail her at

In thinking about fundraising initiatives, one of the reasons we choose The Adoption STAR Family Tree idea is because it is a permanent addition to the lobby of our new building, so your donation (and the accompanying inscribed message) will always be visible to anyone and everyone that enters our building.  Please consider making a donation to an agency that means so much to so many; your support is greatly appreciated!
