2018 Fostering Futures Scholarship Event - Grand Rapids
More than 190 people attended the fourth annual Fostering Futures Scholarship Event – Grand Rapids. The lunchtime event at Amway Grand Plaza Hotel raised $37,573 for Michigan’s Fostering Futures Scholarship Trust Fund. Attendees enjoyed food and music, placed bids on items in a silent auction and bought raffle tickets for prizes – all for the benefit of Michiganders who have been in foster care.
Keynote speaker Don Carey, who plays for the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, emphasized that a person’s success isn’t determined by his or her size, socioeconomic status, hometown or school attended. “Don’t worry about what people say you can and can’t do,” Carey said.
