March 16th, 2024 – the Eleventh Annual Rising Phoenix Awards will be a night to remember!
The 2024 Rising Phoenix Awards banquet and awards ceremony will happen Saturday March 16th, 2024 and it will be a night to remember! It will be a hybrid in-person/virtual event, hosted at Weber’s hotel and restaurant in Ann Arbor and also via Zoom and Facebook Live. There’s a whole new format for this annual gathering of the Rising Phoenix community and it’ll allow for hearing the stories of this year’s Rising Phoenixes first-hand in the Story Zone as well as facilitating meaningful community connections in fun, experiential ways.
Get tickets at Eventbrite.
We’ll start gathering at 5:30 for appetizers and cocktails, have a nice sit-down dinner at 6:30, and then move into the recognition ceremony at 7:30, where we will start the Zoom broadcast. After welcoming in our new Rising Phoenixes with formal awards and a Community Drumming ceremony, from 8:30 to 10:00 we’ll move into “Community Engagement” time which will offer participants different ways to connect with the Rising Phoenix Collective and each other in a number of interesting and fun ways. You’ll be able to witness the Rising Phoenixes tell their stories and learn about organizations and programs they created; explore the organizations, programs, & people working in each of the major life transitions we support; take part in an energizing drum circle; take formal photos as well as funny photos in our photo booths; explore the Rising Phoenix merchandise booth; explore first-hand the magic and power of the Eos Community Connections Portal; and even relax with a cocktail in the Social Zone. Please come join us!
