It's Gala Season!

Written by karly@sharedetroit.org    on September 21, 2021    in

At SHARE Detroit, one of our favorite things is working with nonprofits on our platform and help them “do good” by promoting the many ways to support their efforts.
 
Fundraising events are a great way to become acquainted with a new organization.   With the fall season upon us, many community members are ready to open up their calendars and schedule some time for outings and festive occasions with friends. Several of the nonprofits we are proud to work with have formal fundraising events lined up this fall and we wanted to take the opportunity to highlight some of them to give our readers the chance to be a part of a unique and impactful experience.  Follow us on social media to keep an eye on formal and informal ways to support the wonderful work of the nonprofits who are a part of the SHARE Detroit family.
 
Some of the events listed have both an in-person and virtual option. If you are more comfortable staying close to home, you can still be a part of the fun!
