krista flynn photo with titleThe 2023 Be the Rock Gala was a great success, raising nearly $200,000 for those who are the most vulnerable throughout Michigan. The night created wonderful memories, and was filled with opportunities to learn more about the many cultures from the regions of the world where we help welcome refugees. From playing along with the music of Africa, to the artistry of henna tattoos, dancing to the sounds of the Ukrainian accordion, experiencing the thrill of live birds, the new taste of grasshopper salt, or trying salsa, there was something for everyone.

We are blessed to have your support and look forward to seeing you in Detroit on November 3rd. If you wanted to make a gift and were not able to do so, you can do so by clicking here. We are truly grateful for your generosity and want to thank you once again for making it a very special night.
