Rainbow Connection’s Dream Makers’ Ball An Astounding Success Making Dreams Come True For Michigan Children with Life Threatening Illnesses

Guests of the second annual Rainbow Connection Dream Makers’ Ball enjoyed an enchanting evening at Birmingham’s beautiful Townsend Hotel on April 30. The event was lead by the talent of MC Jasen Magic and promised to be filled with entertainment and surprise for all in attendance.

Mystically decorated as a gift by Emerald Design, the room was filled to capacity with hundreds as they gathered to lend support and celebrate The Rainbow Connection’s mission of making dreams come true for Michigan children with life threatening illnesses.

The evening was infused with touches of magic – signature color-changing cocktails, cucumber sauce served as sorbet in a cloud of liquid nitrogen, and a custom flaming dessert served in a parade of shooting sparklers to the highest bidding table are just a few highlights of the unique entertainment featured throughout the evening.

Most importantly, all of the aspects of the evening led to raising more than $300,000 to benefit The Rainbow Connection and the hundreds of wishes granted each year to Michigan children.

WXYZ Chanel 7 Reporter and Rainbow Connection Board President Dave Lewallen, said, “What a magical night! The support for this year’s Dream Maker’s Ball is so important to the mission of Rainbow Connection. The success of the evening allows us to fulfill the wishes of many more Michigan children with life-threatening illnesses.”

Event honorary co-chairs L. Brooks Patterson, Jeffrey Taub M.D. and Rod Alberts were joined by Wish Ambassador 5-year-old Aidyn for this enchanting black tie gala. Aidyn, dressed in his tux, received his own special surprise when a new Police cruiser, just his size,  was purchased for him at auction.

“We promised a magical evening and all agree it certainly was,” said Mary Grace McCarter, Rainbow Connection Executive Director. “The setting was enchanting, the entertainment spectacular and our Wish Ambassador Aidyn touched the heart of everyone there. We count on the support of the community to make dreams come true for these brave children and tonight it is our dream that came true!”

A Charity Navigator 4-Star charity, The Rainbow Connection has never turned a child away and depends fully on the generosity of communities across the state to help put a smile on the face of these brave Michigan children.

In addition to making dreams come true, The Rainbow Connection offers comfort, hope and joy through its emergency services, annual Wish Family Events and college scholarships given to wish children.
