Please join Catholic Charities West Michigan at our Raising Hope Dinner. This year we are welcoming Ginger Zee, ABC News, and Good Morning America’s Chief Meteorologist, as our keynote speaker. Ginger will speak about mental health and overcoming her own experiences with depression and verbal abuse.  During the event, we will also be hearing from our clients and celebrating our Behavioral Health and Counseling Programs. These programs work every day to help those among us that need support, guidance, and someone to listen.

Come to hear powerful stories of impact by some of the clients in our programs, while enjoying music as well as delicious food and drinks.  Also, get in the holiday spirit and experience free access to the Christmas and Holiday Traditions Around the World exhibit at the Frederik Meijer Gardens.
