TCH Gala and Pillars of Vibrancy
Since it was founded in 1923 to serve as the village gathering place, The Community House has performed its mission sans one dime of tax monies. Thus, fundraisers like the fourth annual TCH Gala, which attracted 230 ($250 ticket) on March 14, are vital. Unlike the first three soirees, which honored family-owned business owners Dave Trott, Linda Orlans and Stephen Polk, the 2015 event saluted Dr. Herman Gray, executive vice president of Detroit Medical Center and former CEO of DMC Children’s hospital.
