Approximately 160 people attended the fifth annual Fostering Futures Scholarship Event – Grand Rapids. The lunchtime event at Amway Grand Plaza Hotel raised $36,817 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.

"I want to thank the Grand Rapids community for how much they support the Fostering Futures Scholarship," said Robin Lott, executive director of MET. "The money raised at this luncheon will help move those youth who have experienced foster care onto a Road to Opportunity. Foster care youth don't typically have the same family support as others, so every dollar helps them obtain a college education."
