We are proud to announce the date for the second annual City Lights Benefit Gala. On August 9, 2014, we will once again be raising funds to support the important work of the Grace Centers of Hope childcare center named Hands of Hope. The event will also benefit the Pontiac Downtown Business Association. Last year was the first annual event, and it was an overwhelming success. We were able to raise close to $40,000 to benefit these two important organizations. The event was well attended by 227 guests, and included distinguished guests including Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Paterson, Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard as well as many other business and government leaders, media and local celebrities.
Hosted on the rooftop of the beautiful Lafayette Place Lofts building, last year’s event was both exciting and fun. Guests were treated to a strolling gourmet dinner, 18 piece live band and dancing, as well as live and silent auctions. The event was well covered in the media, including a preview segment on Fox 2 Detroit Cooking School, coverage and articles in the Detroit News and Oakland Press as well as photographic coverage by Hour Detroit Magazine and Ambassador Magazine. We are excited to announce that the 2014 event venue will once again be the rooftop of the Lafayette Place Lofts in Downtown
