‘Gala’ event to help fund New Hope Center for Grief

The Angels of Hope Charity Gala benefiting New Hope Center for Grief Support is planned for 6 p.m. May 20, at St. Mary's Cultural Center, 18100 Merriman Road in Livonia. 

The event is an effort to generate funding for New Hope and continue to serve the mission of bringing hope, healing, and new beginnings to children, families, and adults impacted by the death of a loved one. All New Hope programming and support groups are free of charge and open to all grievers. New Hope is a 501 (c3) nonprofit organization.

Master of Ceremonies for the event will be Kurt David and the evening will include dinner, beer and wine, a silent auction, cork pull, cake raffle, and dancing with the live band Dr. Pocket.

New Hope has served thousands of grievers during the past 22 years. During these uncertain times, services are seeing a tremendous increase in need, a spokesperson said. Whether the grief is an effect of the lingering global pandemic, extended isolation that brought forth unresolved grief, or the horrific losses due to or during COVID, New Hope is a resource providing free compassionate care.

Tickets are available at or by phone at (248) 348-0115 for further information. Ticket sales will end May 11. Event sponsors, participants to join in the festivities, and items to include in the auction are also being sought.
