CARE House of Oakland County Circle of Friends Luncheon

CARE House presented its 24th annual Circle of Friends Luncheon at Townsend Hotel in Birmingham. The luncheon was chaired by Tracy Nystrom, Anna Rea and Anne Weiner and featured keynote speaker Rachael Denhollander, the first woman to publicly accuse former USA Gymnastics team doctor and MSU physician Larry Nassar of sexual abuse. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to the safety of children through prevention, intervention and treatment of child abuse and neglect, as well as educating community members and empowering survivors. Over $120,000 was raised.
