25th Annual Charity Ball for Karmanos Cancer Institure and the Make-A-Wish Foundation
February 21, 2015
It's time once again to put on your sunday best and join us as we help BMD Charities raise money for the Karmanos Cancer Institute and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan. This years Charity Ball is the 25th annual and is going to be even more spectacular than the last and we can not wait. Part of our contribution are two "Taste of Michigan" baskets which be will auctioned off as part of the silent auction portion of the night. This auction always has so many wonderful and varying things to choose from. Since we love Michigan and we love food we thought this was a great way to introduce and shine the spotlight on as many of the delicous, inventive and fabulous Michigan made foods we could find. Michigan is full of brillant foodies who love to share their creations and also give back when ever they can.
We wanted to give a shout out to the companies that have donated so far and to thank them for the generosity. And to maybe introduce you to some made in Michigan food products you might now know about. I am proud to say I have met most of these fine artisans and they are all wonderful in product and in person!

This past weekend we spent three wonderful days in Howell, Michigan at the Michigan Challenge Balloonfest (http://www.michiganchallenge.com/). We were part of the new Michigan Marketplace which highlighted some local Made in Michigan vendors. This marketplace was sponsored by the Heart of Michigan (http://www.heartofmich.com/) gift store which is located in beautiful downtown Howell. Owners Karen and John have really gone out of their way to support dozens of Made in Michigan companies and their store is just an amazing collection of all things yummy, pretty and fun! We were in good company at the Balloonfest.. Papa Turts from Fowlerville was there with their amazing hot sauces. My favorite is the Papa's Smoked Peppa sauce. I put this sauce on everything! (http://www.papaturts.com/product/papassmokedpeppa/) We were also lucky enough to be in the company of PopDaddy Popcorn (http://www.popdaddypopcorn.com/) with their amazing red kernel popcorn popped in olive oil with sea salt. To.Die.For.
We met some new friends as well.. Nicholas Westerholm from Chinks Creek Photography (http://chinkscreekphoto.wix.com/chinks-creek-photo) . He has some really beautiful photographs and other gift ideas to choose from. We alos met Jake from Live.Love.Michigan (http://www.livelovemichigan.com/) with the cutest Michigan clothes line I have ever seen! There were dozens of vendors there from all over the state. Along with the carnival and balloonfest activities it was a great, family friendly event.
One of the highlights of the weekend was the glow event on Saturday night. I have never had the opportunity to see this before and it was well worth the wait! I didn't really realize how BIG hot air balloons were until we got up close and personal with them. What a great experience!
