You’re invited! Join us for our sixth annual “Under the North Star,” our signature fundraising event in support of sending children with serious illnesses to camp. Hosted at the beautiful historic Detroit Athletic Club in the heart of downtown Detroit, the exclusive evening will feature a night of inspiration, entertainment and great food. Live and silent auctions will help raise money to send even more kids and their families to our medically-supported camp.
“Under the North Star” is a gala event that gives new meaning to “glamping” by bringing the fun of camp to one of the Motor City’s most glamorous venues, all in support of sending kids with serious health challenges to North Star Reach. Since 2014, our annual gala has brought together celebrated entrepreneurs, business owners, philanthropists, and civic leaders. Since its beginning, the event has raised significant financial support to ensure the life-changing camp experiences offered to hundreds of children and their families each and every year remain free of charge.
