A Night to Embrace Our Children and Families Gala



Saturday, November 8, 2014
The Townsend Hotel
100 Townsend St · Birmingham · MI 48009
6:30 p.m.
5:30 p.m. VIP Party at the Corner Bar

We invite you to join Honorary Chairs David and Nancy Lau and Jonathan and Meloney Lau and Honorary Vice-Chairs James and Sally Scapa and Tom M. and Ingrid Perring for Judson Center’s spectacular, annual fundraising gala A Night to Embrace Our Children and Families presented by Chevrolet.

On Saturday, November 8, 2014, Judson Center supporters and friends will come together at the Townsend Hotel to celebrate 90 years of building brighter futures for children and families at a spectacular Roaring 20’s themed evening. In 1924, the Charleston was hot, Chevrolet was the best-selling car in the U.S., and Judson Center began changing lives. Join us in celebration for an evening of cuisine, cocktails, 20’s inspired entertainment, and a chance to bid on unique items in the live and silent auctions.

A Night to Embrace is more than just a great party – it raises critical funds to support Judson Center’s vital mission of building brighter futures for more than 6,500 children and their families in our community – children challenged with autism, children with special needs, and children that have been abused or neglected.

We invite you to invest in the children in our community by joining us at A Night to Embrace. You and your guests will enjoy a truly memorable evening, and most important of all, be a part of changing a child’s and family’s life in the most positive way possible.

Help pave the way to a bright future for the children entrusted in our care. If you have any questions about A Night to Embrace, please contact Andrea Coronado, Special Events and Corporate Relations at (248)554-6361 or  andrea_coronado@judsoncenter.org.
