Role Model Celebration

In honor of International Women’s Day, join us at The Henry Ford on March 8, 2023, as we celebrate the accomplishments of extraordinary women in our shared community and the accomplishments of the girls and young women we serve.

The celebration will include an opportunity to bid on various auction items while making an impact.

Sponsorship Opportunities

To continue to help our most vulnerable girls and young women who are experiencing homelessness or being trafficked, abused, or at-risk to become so, we rely on strong community support. When you become a sponsor at AFG, you are our partner in changing lives, that also changes a community. When one person thrives, they help those around them do so too.

Please contact Erika Jones, Fund Development Director, at with any questions.

Auction Opportunities

The Role Model Celebration features both live and silent auctions, honored Role Models,
and testimonials. Over 400 guests attend the dinner, where they actively bid on the
donated items.

Please contact Amenia Army, Fund Development Manager, at with any questions.
