Summer Glow

Friday, June 14, 2024

6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Grosse Ile, Michigan

Event Chairs Katie Daly Vitale, Santina Daly Bragadin, Christina Daly Gruber, and Marie Campo Daly invite you to kick off the summer season while enjoying a breathtaking view of the Detroit River at the beautiful home of Michael and Amber Sabat. Dinner outdoors with an expansive waterfront view and a live auction highlight the evening.
 
Summer Glow supports the work of The Guidance Center’s three Community Resource Centers (CRCs) in River Rouge, Southgate and Taylor (two of which are housed in our Head Start sites), which bring hope and resources to adults and children through various programs including playgroups, literacy events, parenting resources, Clothing Closet, Diaper Depot, and a Toy Chest. For example, the Toy Chest allows parents to “shop” for a new toy to give to their child on birthdays or other special occasions. There is no cost for any services provided through the Community Resource Centers, all of which are open to the public. You can learn more about the CRCs here. This evening also supports the Budd Lynch Endowment Fund for Children.
