KIDSgala Hosts White Party to Support Children in Community

You’re Invited to the KIDSgala White Party

The KIDSgala group here in Michigan is at it again! Aside from planning two special celebrations a month for children in the community who are experiencing or have experienced a life-altering event, the team is also planning their annual White Party for May 31, 2019, to be held at the Townsend Hotel.

In 2009, Emerald City Designs business owner, David C. McKnight re-connected with a high school classmate named Shelly Lang Burton from Lake Orion, Michigan.  At that time, David learned about her daughter Nicole Marie Burton, who was diagnosed with Leukemia. 

Saddened to hear that this little girl and her family were suffering, he thought of the generous idea celebrations for children who are battling life challenging events. His purpose was to bring hope and smiles to these children and their families.  Nicole Burton was David’s inspiration to start KIDSgala and in her name, the plans of the first celebration began. 

On October 23, 2013 Nicole Burton experienced a relapse and unfortunately, the KIDSgala event that was being thoughtfully and carefully planned out, ended up being a memorial luncheon for little Nicole Marie Burton.

Since then, David C. McKnight, President and the Board of Directors of KIDSgala have raised thousands of dollars with fundraising events and has created numerous celebrations for local Michigan children. In 2014, KIDSgala started gifting “celebration of life” parties to children. This is only possible through the help of generous sponsors, community donations, thoughtful volunteers, and money raised from the White Party. 

Donations and sponsors are highly recommended if you are looking for an opportunity to help. Another way to help is to sponsor the White Party, purchase admissions to attend or purchase a table for you and your friends or coworkers. The 2019 annual White Party will be held at The Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, Michigan from 7:00 p.m. until midnight

Admissions are $175 per person. Please visit to reserve your admission(s) today. Attending the event is a wonderful opportunity to show your support and to have a fun night with a great group of people for a good cause!
