House of Providence to Host Second Annual Wishes Gala Nov. 13

Black-tie gala hosted by WDIV reporter Chuck Gaidica, features keynote speaker Rob Morris of Love146

Growing up the second oldest of a large family in Rochester Hills, Maggie Dunn saw firsthand the inner workings of the foster system. Now, she’s determined to make sure other foster children are given a chance—especially older children with House of Providence.

Until every child has a home

Following a sold-out gala last year, House of Providence will once again host the black-tie Wishes Gala event on Friday, Nov. 13 at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, Mich. More than 400 attendees enjoyed last year’s event, raising more than $300,000 for House of Providence, which provides housing and support for children and teens at risk of aging out of the foster care system.

HOP Wishes Gala“Once a foster child reaches 12 years old, they have a small chance of being adopted, and their likelihood of success in adulthood is slim. House of Providence helps by taking these children and teens and showing them the stability and love that a family can provide,” said Dunn, “Wishes Gala is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these precious children.”

Hosted by WDIV-TV’s Chuck Gaidica, guests will enjoy a plated dinner, silent auction, and remarks from keynote speaker Rob Morris, founder and president of Love146. Morris leads the international human rights organization, working to end child trafficking and exploitation. House of Providence will also be awarding Survivor and Warrior awards to individuals championing the cause of foster children in Michigan.

Individual tickets for Wishes Gala are $100 and are available online at Several sponsorship levels are also available by contacting

House of Providence is a therapeutic home for minors who are wards of the State of Michigan and who find themselves languishing with a prospect of adoption. House of Providence provides vital ministry to children in need of intervention and support services. As a result of the direct care and individual attention given, these youths will grow into whole, independent, and successful adults. Most importantly, they will become part of a family that will provide a permanent support system, perhaps for the first time ever. For more information, visit
