Highlighting economic development in Novi
April 2019
Sponsor our Evening of Appreciation
The City of Novi is hosting a Golden Gala "Evening of Appreciation" for Board and Commission volunteers and employees on Saturday, December 7, 2019, to honor their commitment and celebrate 50 fabulous years as a City.

As a community partner, we are hoping you might consider becoming an event sponsor or donating an item for raffle to be held that evening. We are seeking items valued at $50 and more which include, but are not limited to, gift cards, bundled baskets, housewares, electronics, etc. If you are so inclined to make a cash donation, funds would be used to purchase gift cards to local Novi establishments.

If you have any questions or would like to donate, please reach out to our Community Relations team at 248.735.5628 or email communityrelations@cityofnovi.org.
