Benefiting Helen DeVos Children's Hospital Foundation

The Helen DeVos Children's Hospital Foundation is a charity near to my heart.  My Grandson Knox was Diagnosed with Leukemia in 2020, just before his 3rd birthday.  He is now in remission and continues his treatments at HDCH.  My Granddaughters Grace and Lilly both spent weeks at HDCH after being born premature at 25 and 29 weeks.  Miraculously both are thriving today.  Please help me thank and support HDCH'S motto to "FIGHT FOR EVERY CHILD" by purchasing your Gala ticket today!
