 GLOWing Reviews!

“I have been to a lot of events, and a lot of first time events and you should be VERY proud of what you were able to accomplish. I also feel like it was the most integrated event I’ve been to in Ypsi (or any were really) and that made me happier than anything. Very well done.”


“Congratulations on the amazing ypsiGLOW event!  It literally brought me to tears as I watched the video of the kids and community members expressing what it meant to them.  Since I work in Ypsilanti schools with U of M interns, I am so happy to see a community coming together with such energy, hope and creative spirit.  I am thrilled that there is now another example of how the arts can heal and inspire people, and grow community.  Knowing all the love, generosity, and sweat equity that you poured into this work, I hope that all of you are GLOWING on the inside!”

“You all touched so many hearts that day, including mine. I’m so thankful that I was able to be a part of something so special. I can’t wait to do it again next year… Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart.”
