Starfish Family Services is a nonprofit organization that is strengthening families to create brighter futures for children through early childhood education, family supports, and behavioral health services. This year marks the return of the Great Hearts Gala, Starfish’s largest fundraising event. Join us on Thursday May 9 at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn for an enchanting evening dedicated to benefiting children, youth, and their families.

The festivities will include a cocktail reception, silent auction, seated dinner, and inspiring program. Beyond mere celebration, the evening promises to be both meaningful and unforgettable, uniting compassionate hearts in support of our shared mission.
