There was true magic in the room during our 3rd Annual Hearts & Heroes Gala, and we have our families, friends and colleagues to thank for it. We are truly humbled by the passion we felt coming from every single table at The Roostertail that night. MCHS welcomed more than 400 guests AND raised more funds than ever before at any MCHS event. We mingled, laughed, danced, and through many attendees, welcomed our first pledges supporting the inaugural class of our 2020 charter school – the first true trauma-informed education center in Michigan.
Guests were able to hear first hand the incredible stories of Jennifer, Dexter, Beth, Eli and Michael who have each uniquely been impacted by our mission and are thriving. Each speaker is now paying forward the lessons of kindness, integrity, empathy, willpower and grit which they’ve defined over their lifetime. These remarkable individuals are living proof that no matter what your circumstance is, anything truly is possible — a theme carried into the mission of our new charter school. We’re planting the necessary roots for children who have been dealt a rough hand to have the proper tools to succeed in school and feel that anything is possible. Thank you to our guest, our sponsors, our friends and supporters for growing with us. We couldn’t do it without you!
