Far Friends and Fa-La-La

Julie Kowalik and Brandy Lee co-chaired the 19th annual FAR Friends and Fa-La-La benefiting FAR Therapeutic Arts at Detroit Country Day School's Seligman Performing Arts Center, Beverly Hills. Over 650 attendees enjoyed shopping for handmade gifts at the FAR Bazaar prior to the inspiring show of song and dance featuring FAR participants and their therapists. Honors were given to Detroit Country Day School for their commitment to the community. Glenn Currin received the Hero Award and Ciara Brennan was honored with the Spirit of Far Award. The event raised $110,000 for Far.
