Website              cost free camp in Montana for children and young adults with cancer, by providing strategic, financial and
                                   marketing assistance to further the goals of Camp Māk-A-Dream, including specific projects and assistance
                                   for Michigan residents.
The Founder’s                                   Message from the President
Message                                         Dear Friends,

                                                Looking back on 2009, many wonderful things occurred. We introduced new
                                                campers to Camp Māk-A-Dream, and new events to our Michigan Chapter. In
                                                addition to our ever popular Cookies N’ Dreams, this year we added a spring
                                                golf outing, summer yoga in the park, and a charity poker tournament to our
                                                repertoire. Attending these events reminded me of how grateful we are for the
                                                devoted supporters of Camp Māk-A-Dream.

                                                Thanks to your help, we were able to send 63 children, teens, young adults and
                                                siblings to camp this past summer. The campers I spoke with upon returning
                                                from camp talked about the beautiful mountains, climbing the Butte, their trip
                                                to Philipsburg- with the always favorite trip to one of the biggest candy stores

                                                Our wonderful founder, Sylvia Granader, was honored in Washington on
                                                March 10, 2010 with The Congressional Gold Medal for her participation in the
                                                Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) of WWII. Sylvia traveled to the Capitol
                                                with her granddaughter and son to be honored for her courageous work during

                                                training. This was an elite group who’s value to our country was immeasurable
                                                and we are extremely proud of Sylvia and her fellow pilots for their contribution
