Celebrate Michigan’s Military 2024

The 10th annual Celebrate Michigan’s Military event took place on June 6 at Andiamo Banquets and Catering Center in Warren. In addition to honoring the state’s military, the event raises money for Guardian Angels, which pairs highly trained service dogs with veterans and first responders with PTSD, traumatic brain injury, seizure disorders, mobility issues, and other disorders. The event included a cocktail reception, a dinner, a raffle, silent and live auctions, and music by the Detroit Arsenal Choir Trio. Mary Lamparter, founder of Celebrate Michigan’s Military, was honored as well. // Photographs by Patrick Gloria
