The annual gala fundraiser of The Information Center was a success Oct. 10 at Crystal Gardens in Southgate.

The gala is the primary fundraiser to enable the center to provide free community programs and services to those that need them in the Downriver area and surrounding region.

The evening featured dinner, an open bar, a silent auction and a celebration of Motown’s 60th anniversary by Phase 5 and the Phase 5 Orchestra. Toni Battle, community relations coordinator for the Henry Ford Village Senior Retirement Community, served as emcee.

The Information Center is an accredited nonprofit information and referral agency that connects people with services that can help them.

Since 1975, the center has provided a community Helpline with free comprehensive information and referral services for the public; assistance to the unemployed; services for seniors and the disabled; and personalized assistance understanding eligibility for public benefits and other human services.

The Information Center’s certified health insurance navigators also provide free assistance for those searching for health insurance options.
