Presented by Consumers Energy
2019 MIS Charity Dinner
The MIS Charity Dinner presented by Consumers Energy will be held on Friday, August 9. The event will take place in the Michigan Room at Michigan International Speedway. This event will feature strolling dinner, dessert and drink stations, casino games, live and silent auctions, music by Pro DJ, a photo booth and so much more. The MIS Charity Dinner will benefit the MIS Cares Fund, Henry Ford Allegiance Health Foundation’s Patient Immediate Needs-Cancer Fund, and ProMedica’s New Boundless Playground.
MIS Cares: As a donor advised fund of The NASCAR Foundation, MIS Cares’ mission is to assist and inspire youth within our community. MIS Cares supports youth in our community through grants and scholarship programs. MIS Cares is the official charitable fund of Michigan International Speedway and a donor advised fund of The NASCAR Foundation.
Patient Immediate Needs-Cancer Fund: Gifts to the Cancer Patient Immediate Needs fund remove financial barriers that keep patients with cancer from receiving care. This fund was created to give Henry Ford Allegiance Health cancer patients the best focus and ammunition to fight cancer. Since this fund was created in November 2013, over $120,000 has been spent to help 890 patients.
New Boundless Playground: Currently, there is no fully accessible and inclusive playground for Lenawee County families. The Charles and Virginia Hickman Hospital and YMCA Lenawee-ProMedica Wellness Center are seeking help to raise the remaining funds needed for over 5,000 individuals with disabilities in our community to have a safe, accessible place to play.
