Orchards Children’s Services (Orchards) will host its annual major fundraising event, Saturday, May 5, 6:00 p.m. starting with a VIP cocktail reception followed by a seated dinner program, silent auction and live musical entertainment by Straight Ahead at 7:00 p.m. The event will take place inside the Grand Ballroom of the MGM Grand Detroit hotel in Detroit.
Popularly known as the Gerald L. Levin Champions for Children Signature Event, the evening is a gathering of major corporate citizens, philanthropic individuals, foundation partners and various friends/associates of Orchards, and recognizes their efforts at impacting the lives of vulnerable children facing socio-economic challenges ranging from child abuse to neglect.
Evrod Cassimy, Morning Anchor of Local 4 Today, will serve as the master of ceremonies.
“There are two mantras that best articulate our sensibilities with this event”, said Michael Williams, Orchards President/CEO. “First is our ‘Orchards Promise,’ which the Promise Scholarship is named after that promotes the high priority we place on using education to uplift our most vulnerable children; and secondly ‘Not on My Watch,’ which reaffirms our commitment to ensuring bright futures for children and families as it relates to educational opportunities.”
