Family Life Services conducts two major fund-raising events Celebrating Life each year, our Annual Gala in late winter or early spring, and a fall Walk for Life. Typically, donations fall off during the summer every year so the Walk for Life helps us keep the doors open until the end of the year when people make gifts for Christmas or for tax benefits.
Support our Fundraising Events
We invite the entire greater Ann Arbor community to attend our events. You can get to know us and learn how you can maximize our community impact and benefit.
The 2019 FLS Walk for Life will be on Saturday, September 7, 2019, at Lillie Park on Platt Road in Pittsfield Township. If you’d like to join the planning committee for this great family event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let Chloe know and find out when the next planning meeting is.
This terrific family event is great for all ages. The 2018 Walk for Life was held at North Bay Park in Ypsilanti, just a few miles from the FLS Center.
We were joined by over 100 participants who came together to walk, pray and worship.
The event raised about $6,000, allowing us to continue helping families in need with material goods, free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, parenting classes, and more.
2019 Annual Gala
Another gala is going down in the books. March 21, 2019, was a great day for this event, held at the Ypsilanti Eagle Crest Marriott. Guest Speaker Travon Clifton shared her story with us and the food was excellent.
Planning is already underway for our 2020 Gala. This is our 35th anniversary celebration and we are excited about sharing it with you. There is no firm date yet but we are planning to have it at the Eagle Crest Marriott again. We’ll let you know just as soon as the date is decided.
