2014 Red Tie Ball

At Oakwood we believe that every child, no matter how challenged, deserves to shine. 

This year’s Red Tie Ball event was held at Detroit’s Historic Fox Theatre. Proceeds from the evening will benefit children at Oakwood’s Center for Exceptional Families (CEF) and babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).  We raised over $415,000 to help give tomorrows and secure state of the art equipment, provide advanced clinician training and offer much needed family support for both these programs.
