To our participating Captains’, the parade would not exist without you. Thank you for all that you do to make this parade a success. We know it is costly and time consuming to decorate these boats. Thank you for taking the time planning, designing, decorating, purchasing lights, and spending many hours to make these boats look amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
A VERY BIG THANK YOU to Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Huron Pointe Excavating and Lori’s Lick ‘Em Up Ice cream, for being our Co-sponsors this year! All three of these businesses did not hesitate to generously give. We can’t thank you enough.
To all of our 42 sponsors who supported this event. We are so fortunate to live in a community where people join together for a great cause. It is amazing how generous all of you are. Because of this spirit, hard work and generosity, the Parade of Lights, has raised over $14,000.00 for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation-Stilson Specialty Center. Thank you all for another spectacular parade.
This year Art Brooks, Alpha 1, passed away. He was dearly missed today. His spirit and enthusiasm for the parade, helped in its success for over 25 years. We know Art is here with us today.
