Gala to benefit Farmington/Hills Neighborhood House

An April 16 gala at Longacre House in Farmington Hills will honor an outstanding community volunteer and benefit a local charity.

Neighborhood House serves the residents of Farmington and Farmington Hills by providing needed assistance throughout the year. Last year, the organization helped more than 220 families with rent assistance, utilities, prescriptions, and food.
