The Summer Solstice Soiree will begin with a cocktail hour strolling through the lower gardens and stone cottage of OPC. Live musicians will serenade guests as they view classic cars and silent auction items. The dinner hour invites guests to sit under a promenade of lights at farm tables embracing the best of Michigan summer and enjoying a 4-course plated meal provided by the Head Chef of Stonecrest. Music, dancing, and more surprises will complete this magical evening.

Since its inception, the OPC has provided Meals on Wheels to home-bound seniors allowing them to stay healthy and independent for as long as possible. Meal recipient Joyce has been receiving meals for a few years now. “I’m unable to leave my home and can’t stand at the stove to cook anymore. The meals that are delivered to me are quite tasty like the ham and potatoes. Every volunteer is courteous and kind. They truly are a bright spot in my day.”

The Soiree tickets are $100 per person and support the Meals on Wheels program at OPC. They can be purchased at the Cashier’s Office, online, or by calling 248-608-0251.
