“The Better Together Celebration” commemorated the merger of South Oakland Shelter and Lighthouse. A tented private affair, which was held on the grounds of M1 Concourse in Pontiac, included dinner, music, classic cars and fireworks. Speakers included Senator Gary Peters; CEO Ryan Hertz; Oakland County Treasurer Andy Meisner; Development Director Russ Russell; Pontiac City Council President Randy Carter; and State Representative Brenda Carter. Fox 2’s Roop Raj served as emcee. The evening raised more than $45,000 to aid hunger, poverty and homelessness in metro Detroit.
