Time: 6:30 PM – Cocktail Reception

Please join Catholic Charities West Michigan at our Raising Hope Dinner and answer the question “What hunger will YOU feed?” We know that people in our community are hungry for more than just food; they need safety, companionship, unity, and peace. Through our nearly 30 Family Preservation and Support programs, we partner with families to promote positive change by providing education, support and community services that enable them to strengthen their family unit and remain together now and in the future.

Come hear powerful stories of impact by some of the families 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.

If you are in need of more information, please contact Bethany Stowe, Events Manager, at bstowe@ccwestmi.org or 616.551.5663.
