At our Celebration of Impact gala, we announced a $2.5M gift from the Sam L. and Judith G. Yaker Fund that will serve to revitalize and promote affordable homeownership in the Newberry neighborhood in southwest Detroit. The gala was an great success, raising about $600,000, thanks to the generosity of over 70 different sponsors. The Yaker Fund announcement and the gala itself generated significant media. Here is a compilation of links.
