Under the North Star
September 30 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm$100
North Star Reach, a medical specialty camp for children with serious illnesses and their families, is hosting a community celebration and signature fundraiser, Under the North Star, at its 105-acre campus overlooking Patterson Lake in Pinckney on Friday, September 30. The outdoor event features unique camp-style experiences (including pontoon boat rides and archery), a strolling dinner, live auction, and concert by the popular Detroit-based band FiftyAmpFuse. Guests will also be invited to take a short “Mission Walk” to see and hear how North Star Reach, which opened in 2016 and is part of the Paul Newman founded SeriousFun Children’s Network, has transformed the lives of children with serious health challenges and their family members through its free summer overnight camps, spring and fall family weekends, online educational conferences, virtual camper meetups, and caregiver support groups. The walk will include a tour through the camp’s accessible treehouse and state-of-the-art health center. During summer camp sessions, “The Observatory” is staffed 24/7 by experienced medical professionals from leading local pediatric hospitals, including Michigan Medicine’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, Beaumont Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Michigan, and Henry Ford Health System.
