The Manna Gala

Featuring entertainment by the Owen James Trio, this fun evening will begin with cocktail hour overlooking Lake Michigan followed by a live auction and a delicious dinner from the culinary team at Bay Harbor Yacht Club. This is an opportunity to become well acquainted with the Manna Board of Directors and staff, as well as raise funds to support the Food 4 Kids Backpack Program, which keeps food insecure children in pre-k and elementary schools fed and fueled for success.
