2017 Winter Gala & Silent Auction: An Inspiring Success


Our 4th Annual Winter Gala & Silent Auction was our most successful yet!

Featured speaker, Crawley Anthony, shared his Family Promise of Genesee County journey with guests, Saturday, February 4th. Crawley and his family came to FPGC in the summer of 2015. Crawley, his wife and their 18-year-old son spent just under a month as guests, before graduating the program and securing sustainable housing.

Fast forward to 2017 and Crawley has been an official employee of FPGC for more than a year. While with us as a guest family, Crawley‘s spirit, determination and his general love of life won over every person he met. He is incredibly gifted with the skill of working on vehicles, a skill that he’s used to help other guest families save money time and time again, and his patient, gentle nature was suited perfectly for driving the van in the afternoons. Crawley shared from his heart and it is, in no small part, what helped to drive the event’s success.

A heartfelt thank you to all who attended and contributed to its success. It was great to see so many new faces. A special thank you to our Director of Development, Nicole, and our dedicated Board of Directors for coming together to make the 2017 event so wonderful and memorable. The night would not have been nearly as wonderful without our volunteers – Thank you!
