2017 Giving Gala

On Thursday, October 12th, Evergreen Commons will host our first Giving Gala. It is sure to be a fun and meaningful event, and will be held at The Commons of Evergreen Auditorium. Throughout the evening guests will “Experience Evergreen” and hear the heartwarming stories about the people that are served by our programs. This event includes a cocktail reception, fine dining, and a behind- the- scenes look at the impact Evergreen Commons has on older adults in the West Michigan community. 

Proceeds from the event will support the programming at The Commons of Evergreen, The Day Center of Evergreen, and In-Home Care of Evergreen. Annually our programs and services provide community and hope to over 5,000 older adults. Your support will help us continue to respond to the needs of low-income older adults in our community. Please find out how you or your organization might be able to further support Evergreen with a sponsorship of the event at this link HERE.
