Two Major Fundraising Events per Year

Family Life Services hosts two major fund-raising events Celebrating Life each year, our Annual Gala in late winter or early spring, and a fall Walk for Life.  Typically, donations fall off during the summer every year so the Walk for Life helps us keep the doors open until the end of the year when people make gifts for Christmas or for year-end.

Support our Fundraising Events

We invite the entire greater Ann Arbor community to attend our events. You can get to know us and learn how you can maximize our community impact and benefit.

29th Annual Walk for Life Saturday, September 7, 2019

The 2019 FLS Walk for Life was at Lillie Park on Platt Road in Pittsfield Township.

This terrific family event was great for all ages.

We had prizes for teams and individuals who got the most sponsors.

Gifts included coloring books for all the kids, coffee, juice and donuts in the morning and homemade tacos with chips and lemonade in the afternoon.

Family fun activities included a puppy petting zoo, pot pet painting, blowing bubbles and sidewalk chalk.

Another gala has gone down in the books.  March 21, 2019, was a great day for this event, held at the Ypsilanti Eagle Crest Marriott. Guest Speaker Travon Clifton shared her story with us and the food was excellent.

The 2018 Walk for Life was held at North Bay Park in Ypsilanti, just a few miles from the FLS Center. We were joined by over 100 participants who came together to walk, pray and worship. 

The event raised about $6,000,  allowing us to continue helping families in need with material goods, free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, parenting classes, and more.
