Club 401 Raises Funds to Support Child Evaluation Clinic


More than 300 guests stamped their “Passporte to Paris” at the annual McLaren Flint Foundation Charity Gala held earlier this year. Along with providing a welcome winter escape for participants, the event more importantly raised net proceeds of $86,000 to help fund operations at the Child Evaluation Clinic (CEC). Located within the Weiss Child Advocacy Center in Flint, the CEC provides medical examinations of children who are suspected victims of child sexual abuse.

The physical evidence obtained at the Clinic is critical in successfully prosecuting these cases of child abuse through the legal system. The McLaren physicians and nurses who staff the CEC are specially trained in this field and embody that special blend of expertise and compassion to make the experience as comfortable for the child as possible. The CEC collaborates with area law enforcement officials, the court system and the Weiss Child Advocacy Center in its mission to serve children and families affected by this horrendous offense. Since its inception 26 years ago, the Clinic has served more than 3,500 children.
