Beyond Basics Gala

March 11, 2019


Beyond Basics celebrated its 20th anniversary with a “Coming Together for Children” Gala at the Detroit Athletic Club. Recognition was given to the Farbman Group for Partner of the Year and to Susan Wilhelm and Susan Galambos for Volunteers of the Year. Judge Geno Salomone received the Literacy Chair Award and President and Executive Director of Beyond Basics, Pamela Good, was also honored for her contributions to the organization over the past 20 years. Thanks to generous sponsors and patrons, the evening raised $342,000 which will be used to fund Beyond Basics, a literacy non-profit dedicated to one-on-one reading intervention.
