Run For the Roses

Event Information

Join us on Saturday, May 6, 2017 for the 5th Annual Julep Gala!

This year, we will be celebrating our 5th annual gala, the Foundation’s 30th year anniversary and will pay tribute to our donors.

As our special evening begins, you will be greeted with fine music, while stepping back in time on your stroll through the Vintage Automobile Collection of the Heritage Center. Make a stop for a complimentary Mint Julep and a few delicious appetizers before having your photo taken next to one of the incredible automobiles. The photo will be a great memento of this very special evening. The aroma of the meal, prepared with Derby Flair, will let you know it's time for dinner. Sit down, relax and enjoy your meal and music. 

Please join us for a relaxing, fun-filled Kentucky Derby style evening at the Gilmore Car Museum's Heritage Center (6865 Hickory Road Hickory Corners, MI 49060)! All proceeds will support the new Spectrum Health Pennock Cancer Center.
