If you were looking for another fancy fundraiser or black-tie gala to add to your calendar this spring, we are so sorry.
If you've got a packed schedule, hobbies that you don't spend enough time on, kids that need your attention, or if you just like the thought of staying home, ordering take out, and watching some Netflix, please join us at your new favorite event! We will be posting updates and sharing the evening with our supporters on Facebook, so please feel free to join us online (if you're not too busy doing exactly what you want to be doing).
For the third year, we've decided to skip the formalities and focus on doing what we do best-- providing care for uninsured Michigan residents. On Thursday, April 12th, the doors to the Dr. Gary Burnstein Community Health Clinic will be open, and patients will receive the free, high-quality, compassionate care they have come to expect from the Dr. Gary Burnstein Community Health Clinic. Instead of spending money on a babysitter, a new outfit, or a ticket, please make a donation that will provide care for those in our community facing chronic conditions and acute illnesses without insurance. This event allows the Clinic to avoid the cost of a banquet hall, a valet, and a dinner and put that money directly into the programs that keep our community healthy.
This year, staying home will make an EVEN BIGGER impact this year thanks to the generosity of the Doris and Norma Van Gorp Foundation. Our first $25,000 in donations will receive a dollar-for-dollar match. This means more medical care, more medications, and more dental care for more of our friends, family, and neighbors.
Donate Today! Here's just an idea of just how far your money goes when you Stay At Home to Make a Difference, as compared to arranging for a big night on the town at a Big Event Fundraiser.
$20: Pay for an Uber driver for the night or one month of supplies for a patient with a chronic condition
$50: This secures a babysitter for one night or a full course of antibiotics for five adult patients
$100: Buy a ticket for the big event or an entire year’s worth of medication for two high-risk patients
$500: A new outfit to make your big entrance at the big event or lab work for every single patient at the clinic for an entire month
$1000: A makeover for two to ensure the perfect photo op or a complete set of new teeth for a patient in need
$2000 - Provides all of the above and more A night in with your family while making a difference in our community, changing lives, bringing people back to health...Priceless.
