After nearly 3 years, AutoGlow, presented by Ford Motor Company, returned on September 16th to bring many of our supporters together and raise funds for The Children’s Center. There were nearly 600 guests ready to celebrate at Ford Field following Charity Preview, presented by the North American International Auto Show.
“This year’s AutoGlow was a wonderful way to celebrate and support the work we do for the 3,500- plus children and their families,” said Debora Matthews, President, and CEO of The Children’s Center. “We are tremendously grateful to those who purchased tickets or sponsored as those funds allow us to continue providing quality care that helps children overcome some of the most difficult circumstances.”
AutoGlow was entitled “Imagine with Me” and was hosted by Lisa and Bill Ford and Lia and Mark Farley. Since this event’s inception, it has generated over $6 million in net proceeds to benefit The Children’s Center. Original artwork was painted live by Detroit artist Trae IsAAc, music by DJ Prevu and NuClassica featuring Miss Michigan Melissa Baynard, and raffle items including travel vouchers to Delta Air Lines!
We are so grateful for our generous sponsors and attendees. A special thank you to our volunteers that made this event possible! We look forward to celebrating again next year!
