Associated Builders and Contractors held 35th annual Great Lakes Bay Fundraiser to Benefit Make-A-Wish

Midland, MI – May 2022
Associated Builders and Contractors – Greater Michigan Chapter is pleased to announce having raised a record $42,900 at the 2022 fundraising event benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan.

Since the chapter began working with Make-A-Wish as part of its ABC Cares initiative, they have raised over $590,000 allowing wishes to be granted to more than 90 area children.

“It is a true honor to be a part of such an amazing organization. The volunteers, staff and community who help make this event possible are beyond generous in their giving. To be a part of an amazing team that helps to grant kids’ wishes is awesome. And we have a lot of fun at the same time,” said Cathy Geiger, director of marketing & community affairs of ABC Greater Michigan.

The event was held in April at The Great Hall located inside Valley Plaza Resort in Midland, with Jedi Mind Trip as the entertainment.
