Tux & Tennies | Whaley Children’s Center GalaRandy Wise Motorcars, Grand Blanc | 6.18.2024


Nearly 300 supporters attended this extraordinary gala held annually to support the kids at Whaley Children’s Center.

Co-hosted by local radio personality Lisa Marie of CARS108 and longtime Flint TV news anchor Bill Harris, the evening’s vibrant atmosphere was filled with remarkable moments that showcased the community’s commitment and generosity.

In an elegant, yet relaxed ambiance, guests enjoyed a sumptuous culinary experience with food catered onsite by the renowned Redwood Steakhouse & Brewery. The event’s highlight was the live auction, once again featuring some truly unique and coveted items. The stars included two “The Greatest Rivalry” sports packages graciously donated by the Wise family, bringing in an impressive $20,000! A creative “Name Your Own Cocktail” experience donated by The Vault Downtown (Fenton) raised $5,000. Many exciting items were also donated for a silent auction.

Funds raised at this event play a crucial role in supporting the Whaley mission. Specifically, the proceeds will enhance the Clinical and Therapeutic services offered throughout the trauma-informed program, ensuring that all Whaley foster children have the opportunity to simply be kids.

The Tux and Tennies Gala truly embodied the spirit of giving and highlighted the impact that collective efforts can have on the lives of children in need.
