2016 Rising Phoenix Awards Celebration Dinner and Awards Ceremony

An evening of connection, hope, story, and inspiration!
This is the annual gathering of the Rising Phoenix Collective at which we will recognize the eleven 2016 finalists, hear their stories, go in depth with the evaluator team's selection of the 6 most inspiring stories, and celebrate the "Spirit of the Rising Phoenix" in all of us.

We'll gather at 5:30 for appetizers and cocktails, have a nice sit-down dinner at 6:15, and then move into the recognition ceremony at 7:00. The $75 ticket price includes appetizers, dinner, and two drink tickets and a portion of that is tax deductible. Anyone that wishes to attend but needs help with the ticket price may apply for sponsorship to the event by sending an email to It's important that everyone that attends registers individually and indicates which dinner option they want, so upon registration please fill in the follow-up survey about dinner and transportation options.

A Rising Phoenix is someone that has been through one or more difficult major life transitions, persevered and was changed for the better, and chose to use that transitional energy to do something to help others in the community. In 2016 everyone in Southeast Michigan and Northwest Ohio was eligible to be nominated for a Rising Phoenix Award. The Rising Phoenix Awards - a charitable cause - is an annual program in its fourth year, offered by the nonprofit Intentional Living Collective based in Ann Arbor, MI. The Rising Phoenix Collective is a community of hope, and it includes everyone associated with the Rising Phoenix Awards program including current and past nominees, the people that nominated and supported them, current and past program sponsors, current and past evaluators, the current and past RPA staff team members, and everyone that supports using hope and story to inspire others that are dealing with difficult life transitions.

The Rising Phoenix Awards offers deep gratitude and appreciation for our 2016 sponsors Intentional Legacies, Detroit LISC, SUN SHEN, and The Business Development Group! We're still accepting sponsorships for the 2016 program, see here for more information.

We hope to see you there!
