Welcome to My Fundraising Page

Marla Govan

I am pleased to join South Oakland Shelter (SOS) as celebrity dancers in the 9th annual Dancing with the Detroit Stars gala event to be held on Saturday, November 18, 2017 from 7 pm until midnight at The Townsend Hotel in Birmingham. We hope you will join us for an electrifying evening filled with twists, twirls, and intrigue—all for a good cause.

All proceeds raised leading up to and during the event will directly benefit the men, women, and children involved with South Oakland Shelter’s emergency shelter and housing programs. Since its founding, SOS has cared for more than 12,208 homeless children and adults. Partnering with 83 congregations, SOS operates a rotating shelter system to house and feed the homeless populations. Annually, over 8,000 volunteers commit approximately 42,000 hours of in-kind support to provide over 33,000 meals and 11,000 nights of shelter. In order to continue its great work, SOS needs our help!

Please support me as I fundraise for South Oakland Shelter and the great work they are doing for the homeless men, women, and children in our community! Thank you.
