Saturday night awards began with our Make A Wish  Top Contributor awards for 2016.This year many of the top contributors were in attendance to receive their recognition in front of the KI students and families from all the schools. 

This year Make A Wish Representative Eileen was in attendance to present the plaques to our Michigan KI Tang Soo Do group. and to the KI Kajukenpo group. After a short introduction Eileen took the stage to speak and tell a little bit about what we had accomplished this year. When she was finished she introduced Charlie and his mom to the stage (Our Make A Wish family from Ohio this Year) 

Charlies mom talked about what was done for them by Make A Wish and their trip to Disney World and how they were first in line for everything and their meeting with Mickey. as she spoke you could see how much this trip meant to Charlie and his family who were all at the banquet Saturday. Charlie took the stage to present out big check to Make A Wish Foundation on behalf of the Karate Institute of America. This years check was for $14,627.25. Great Job KI Students & Sponsors.

The awards for top contributors this year was our T shirt displaying four past wishes , the total funds raised since 1990 and wishes granted. I am sure you will see them around. The wishes granted by Karate Institute is over 60 and the total raised is now over $403,000.00.

OUTSTANDING. Thank you all from the KI Board of Directors.

Read awards and  Promotion post to see how our night got even better.
