Join the Associated Builders and Contractors of Greater Michigan Chapter (ABC) and GMC for the 32nd annual Dinner and Dance Fundraiser benefiting Make-A-Wish Michigan on May 5, 2017. Enjoy dinner, drinks, dancing, a live auction and raffle. The event will be held at the Great Hall at Valley Plaza in Midland.

More than 350 people plan on attending this elegant event, with hopes to raise $29,000 to help grant the wishes of Michigan kids with life-threatening medical conditions. Last year the event was sold out, so don’t miss your chance to attend by buying your tickets early!

Guests will enjoy participating in a raffle and silent auction as well as music and dancing. Funds raised from this event will be used to sponsor wishes of children in the Great Lakes Bay Region who are bravely facing their health challenges.  

ABC/GMC has been coordinating the annual dinner/dance event for the past 30 years raising a total of over $500,000 allowing wishes to be granted to over 90 area children. Past wish recipient families will also be in attendance as guest of ABC bringing the process full-circle as they help celebrate what Make-A-Wish Michigan has done for them and their loved ones.

  • After undergoing brain surgery and being diagnosed with both a neurological disorder and an uncontrolled seizure disorder, all before the age of three, it’s safe to say that with kid Maggie had no ordinary childhood. Because of her constant seizures, she has had to spend hundreds of hours in physical therapy, causing her to miss out on many childhood activities. Maggie enjoys camping and exploring her home state of Michigan, but due to her seizures, it’s not safe for her to tent camp in rural areas overnight. After being introduced to Make-A-Wish Michigan, deciding on a wish was simple. She wished to have a camper, which would allow her to safely travel with her family. “Maggie’s wish meant freedom to travel as a family in a safe place for her to make many memories,” wish mom Kim said. They spent the first night camping in their front yard and have already enjoyed a few other trips with Maggie’s new camper. One of those trips Included traveling to spend time at the finish line of our first annual Trailblaze Challenge, cheering on hikers as they completed the 21-mile trek to help grant wishes. With purple pom-poms in hand, Maggie was smiling from ear to ear! “Make-A-Wish gave us a fresh start,” Kim said. “They provided something better than medicine: a lifetime of memories and joy.”
