Life Directions Annual Spark of Hope Tribute Gala

Life Directions makes a difference in the lives of young Detroiters by providing the tools, inspiration, and guidance necessary to help them break cycles of violence and under-achievement, and mature into responsible, productive adults. Life Directions’ innovative “Made in Detroit” programming serves communities through peer outreach, peer mentoring, and inter-generational events.

The Spark of Hope Tribute Gala will include a dinner and a silent auction. Frank Venegas Jr., president of Ideal Group, innovative entrepreneur and active community member, and Joan Duggan, an instrumental actor in the growth of Life Directions’ programming for three decades, will be honored for their positive impact on young Detroiters at the event. Brooks Kushman is sponsoring the event, and shareholders John Halan, Jeff Szuma, Earl LaFontaine, Mark Stuenkel and Frank Angileri will be attending.
