About

The Macomb County Warming Center is hosting a networking event on September 9, 2019 at the The Buoy 12, Pub and Eatery in St. Clair Shores as a fundraiser for the Warming Center and its guests. All of the proceeds will go directly to the Warming Center. The networking event is expected to have a variety of professionals in attendance from a variety of fields, including real estate, insurance, law, engineering, and medicine. We will also being giving away various door prizes. Tickets are $20 ahead of time and $25 at the door. You can purchase tickets at the Eventbrite link below or by contacting Thomas Beindit at thomas@macombcountywarmingcenter.org or 586-212-0658. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/networking-with-a-cause-tickets-64573775902 The Warming Center began when a task force organized in 2001 after a brutal winter caused several deaths among the homeless in Macomb County. By the following winter, seven founding churches of various traditions stepped up to offer 11 weeks of shelter, starting with Sacred Heart Church in January 2002. As of today, the Warming Center typically shelters 50-100 people per night through the November to April months when shelter needs are greatest and other programs cannot cover the need. The Center usually services approximately 1,000 people through its services in a given season. Unfortunately, fundraising for the Warming Center has become incredibly important as government funding as been slashed in recent years. Hope to see you all there!
