2017 Event on Main Sets New Records


Cheers and laughter could be heard throughout downtown Ann Arbor on June 22, as the 2017 Event on Main roared late into the evening.

Now in its eighth year, Event on Main has grown tremendously in donations. This year’s Event on Main eclipsed $550,000 for the Charles Woodson Clinical Research Initiative at the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, a 28.5 percent increase from 2016. Additionally, the event set a new attendance record with nearly 600 people coming out to support the Little Victors. 

We want to acknowledge and thank everyone from the planning committee, members of the Board of Regents, leadership, supporters and special guests who helped make the 2017 Event on Main a success.
