New City Neighbors is a faith-based community development organization in Grand Rapids’ Creston neighborhood. Our mission is to empower youth to reach their full potential. We work with a diverse community of youth in 1st through 12th grade. Through our farm, cafe, bakery, after school, and summer programs, we offer high school employment opportunities, spiritual growth, academic tutoring, job and life skills training, and leadership development.

We are holding our 2018 Annual Fundraiser at The Clearwater Place on Thursday, November 8, 2018. 300 guests will join us for an evening celebration with hors d’oeuvres, desserts, a brief presentation, and our annual silent and live auctions. Our goal is to raise $42,000 to directly support youth empowerment in the Creston community.


The cost to attend the event is $30 per person. If you would like to sponsor a table of 10 people, it is $250. To RSVP:
