Celebrate Michigan’s Military 2023

June 6 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Celebrate Michigan’s Military is the premier annual event benefitting Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs. This year, we will celebrate our 9th annual CMM event with an extraordinary dinner, open beer/wine bar, a meet & greet with Guardian Angels Service Dog Teams, and a special keynote by BG (ret) Donald Buldoc and his Guardian Angels’ service dog, Victor!

This year, just as in years past, one hundred percent of the proceeds generated from CMM 2023 will be donated to Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs for training and pairing medical service dogs with Michigan veterans. The cost to train each dog is over $25,000, but the ability to change and/or save the life of a veteran is priceless! Our goal this year is to raise enough money to pair ten dogs, which will then be donated to their recipients thanks to our wonderful CMM 2023 sponsors!

Please join us at The Fred M. Alger Center, Grosse Pointe Farms, on June 6, 2023, at 6:00pm for an unforgettable experience celebrating Michigan’s Military and the newly installed Les Braves: At Water’s Edge sculpture, dedicated to the allies that landed on Omaha Beach in 1944.

The freedom, independence, and relief that service dogs provide is simply incredible and the results are undeniable. Please come see for yourself!
