Making Dreams Come True

Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson and Janet Dobson Vernier hosted the 30th annual Dobson Open Golf Extravaganza on July 27 at the Great Oaks Country Club in Rochester Hills. The event helped raise funds to fulfill the wishes of Michigan children with life threatening illnesses. In addition to visiting places like Walt Disney World, the children also have toured local attractions like Kid Rock’s recording studio in northern Oakland County. Photographs by Nick Martines
