Raising Hope

2019 Date: TBD

Thank you to everyone who came out to Catholic Charities West Michigan’s Raising Hope Dinner! This year we welcomed Ginger Zee, ABC News, and Good Morning America’s Chief Meteorologist, as our keynote speaker. Ginger spoke about mental health and overcoming her own experiences with depression and verbal abuse.  During the event, we also heard from our clients and celebrated our Behavioral Health and Counseling Programs. These programs work every day to help those among us that need support, guidance, and someone to listen.

More than 350 guests enjoyed music as well as delicious food and drinks at the event. Also, they got in the holiday spirit and experienced free access to the “Christmas and Holiday Traditions Around the World” exhibit at the Frederik Meijer Gardens.
