The Macomb-Oakland Regional Center Inc. (MORC) is the premier resource for providing services and supports for individuals with developmental disabilities in southeast Michigan.
Joey Travolta, actor, director, entertainer and brother of John Travolta, will host The Futures Foundation’s 16th Annual Gala fundraiser on Friday, Sept. 26, in Troy.
The Futures Foundation generates resources and awards grants to help fulfill the needs and dreams of individuals with developmental disabilities served by the Macomb Oakland Regional Center. MORC has offices in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne Counties.
Travolta founded Inclusion Films, which involve individuals with special needs in the process of making films. He has also formed an alliance with Oakland University’s OUCares film camp, heading the program and teaching filmmaking skills to individuals with autism spectrum disorders.
Sharing the stage with Travolta will be Carson Alexander, who will discuss “Unmasking Disability.” Also, Greenfield Collision will receive the first Heart of MORC award for generous philanthropy. Fox 2 Detroit's Roop Raj will serve as celebrity MC.
The event, at the San Marino Club, 1685 E. Big Beaver, Troy, is an evening including cocktails and a strolling show of artworks by talented artists served by MORC. Beginning at 6 p.m., dinner, dancing, entertainment and afterglow will follow. Tickets are $100 per person.
