Event Details

We would like to cordially invite you to the 10th Annual Celebrate Michigan’s Military Event, which will be held on June 6th, 2024 at Andiamos Banquet Center in Warren, MI. This special occasion is dedicated to honoring and supporting our country’s heroes – the brave men and women who have selflessly served our nation.

For the past nine years, thanks to the efforts of Mary Lamparter we have successfully raised well over $1,000,000 to support our cause. This year, we hope to make an even greater impact with your generous contributions and presence. As Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, we are committed to providing trained service dogs to veterans in need, free of charge.

In the spirit of gratitude and honor, Carol Borden, the Founder and CEO of Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, remarked, “This event is not just a celebration, but a mission to change lives, and the support we receive each year truly humbles us. It ignites our commitment to continue the unwavering support of our nation’s heroes. We sincerely appreciate Mary’s unwavering dedication to our organization and her invaluable contributions to the success of this extraordinary event. Her tireless efforts have not gone unnoticed, and we are incredibly grateful for her hard work.” On this night, we will celebrate her and the success of this event she created.

The evening will feature a cocktail reception, followed by a delicious dinner buffet, and raffle opportunities to win exciting prizes. We will also have special guests in attendance, including veterans and their service dogs, who will share their stories of strength, resilience, and the positive impact your support has had on their lives.

We urge you to join us for this special event as we celebrate Michigan’s Military community and honor their sacrifices. By attending, you will not only have a memorable evening but also support our efforts to provide life-changing service dogs to those who have served our country.

Additionally, we are offering various sponsorship opportunities for corporations and businesses looking to support our cause. For more information on how you can become a sponsor, please contact Mary Jo Brandt at mj@medicalservicedogs.org

We look forward to having you join us in celebrating and supporting Michigan’s military heroes.
