Lend your support and open your heart for a worthy cause! The 31th Annual MORC Caregiver Appreciation Day will be held on Thursday, May 16 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. , at the Palazzo Grande Banquet Center, 54660 Van Dyke Avenue, in Shelby Township.
The Macomb-Oakland Regional Center (MORC) will honor caregivers who help people with developmental disabilities with the Caregiver Angels Awards and with 100 caregivers and people with disabilities modeling in the Kohl’s Caregiver Fashion Show.
Kohl’s staff will volunteer at the event. Kohl’s will donate nearly $15,000 in clothes to the models . Stylists from two salons in Clinton Township, Bianchi’s and Pintura, have volunteered their time and help with hair and makeup.
The Caregiver Angels Awards, funded by Dr. Arthur Woehrlen, a dentist in Macomb County, will honor 10 caregivers with a beautiful award, an “Angels” jacket, and a check for $250. A new caregiver award will be presented in honor of Colleen O’Neill Brayton, one of the original organizers of the MORC Caregiver Appreciation Day, who passed away in 2012.
