Golden Gala 'Evening of Appreciation' - December 7, 2019
Earlier this year, we kicked off the City of Novi’s golden anniversary festivities – a consistent, year-long theme with events planned each month, culminating with a Golden Gala ‘Evening of Appreciation’ on December 7 honoring the City’s past leaders, volunteers and staff.
As a community friend and partner, we are hoping you might consider becoming an event sponsor or donating an item for a raffle to be held that evening. Raffle items will be given throughout the evening to thank those who have given selflessly to the community we all know and love.
We are seeking items valued at $50 and more which include, but are not limited to, gift cards, bundled baskets, housewares, electronics, etc. If you are so inclined to make a cash donation, funds would be used to purchase gift cards to local Novi establishments. All those who contribute will be recognized at the event.
