Please join Pope Francis Center for the 2022 Building Bridges Gala on Friday, April 29, as we celebrate progress toward a Detroit that is free of chronic homelessness. This in-person event, held at Huntington Place on Detroit’s beautiful riverfront, will include a cocktail reception, dinner, live musical entertainment, and afterglow dancing. Our program, a blend of real-time/taped performances, honoree spotlights, and mission moments from the center, will also be broadcasted to at-home attendees. Individuals being honored this year are Dr. Asha Shajahan (Beaumont Health physician and medical director, Oakland University associate professor) and Vinnie Johnson (founder, chairman, and CEO of Piston Group). The evening presenters are Chuck Gaidica (Emmy Award winner and television host at Local 4) and Fr. Tim McCabe, S.J. (executive director of the Pope Francis Center). All proceeds from the annual silent auction and paddle raise empower our most vulnerable neighbors to achieve a brighter tomorrow.
