Cass Community Social Services Christmas Parade Breakfast Reservations
The tradition of families helping families continues Sunday, December 2nd as Cass Community Social Services hosts its 6th Annual Christmas Parade Breakfast at the Royal Park Hotel. Proceeds from the breakfast benefit programs for homeless mothers and their children in Detroit.
Tickets are still available for the breakfast that begins at 11 am on December 2nd at the Royal Park Hotel in Downtown Rochester. Cass Community Social Services Executive Director Reverend Faith Fowler will speak at 12:15. Festivities are complete by 1:30, enabling guests to walk over to Main Street and enjoy the parade. Cost is $40 per adult, $350 for a table of ten, and $15 for children ages 5-12. Please make reservations by November 28 at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Event Chair Sue Thomasson at 248-495-4448.
The host committee for this year’s breakfast includes Rochester Hills Mayor Bryan and Corrin Barnett, Patricia and Mark Botkin, Barb and Paul Cenko, Jenny and Perry DeCuir, Dave and Judy de Steiger, Christine and Dale Hughes, Dan and Kathy Moore, Lori and Vern Pixley, Jeff and Kim Russell, Beth and Tom Talbert, Julia and Michael Webber Chris and Hal Weemhoff, Sue Thomasson and her family, Cliff and Isabel Bath.
Now in its sixth year, more than 100 families and friends from the Rochester area gather for breakfast prior to the Rochester Hometown Christmas Parade. While ringing in the season with holiday festivities and fellowship, breakfast guests are also raising much-needed funds to help less fortunate families in Detroit. Last year, the $17,000 raised from the event literally put a roof over the heads of homeless moms and their children. The cost of the breakfast is entirely underwritten by The Bath Family Foundation so that 100% of the money raised goes directly to Cass Community’s Mom’s Place program.
Cass Community Social Services utilizes nine facilities in Detroit to provide food, housing, health and employment services for 500 poor and homeless men, women and children each day. The commercial kitchen prepares and serves 20,000 meals a week and in the last two years has included fresh, organic vegetables from the agency’s urban gardens. Cass offers a warming center, 2 emergency shelters, transitional housing, as well as permanent supportive housing. The health services include mental health programs and two free medical clinics. Employment at Cass refers to both job training and permanent employment. 75 people work in Cass’ Green Industries. The mission of Cass is to increase self-reliance and community development.
Many Rochester area residents are actively involved in supporting Cass Community Social Services, including serving on the Board of Directors, volunteering for hands-on work projects at the site itself, as well as generously donating money and household items. Mom’s Place at Cass Community Social Services in Detroit provides transitional housing for homeless women and their children, including their teen-aged sons. This community has helped to provide for them what most already have - a safe, warm and stable home this Christmas!
