Event on Main and Golf on Main raise $1M for Charles Woodson Clinical Research Fund, U-M student-athletes

July 7, 2022  //  FOUND IN: News

Ann Arbor’s most entertaining and exciting event returned to Main Street this June after taking two years off because of the COVID-19 pandemic. And for the first time, it brought a golf outing with it.

Event on Main welcomed guests back to downtown Ann Arbor with live music, food from Mainstreet Ventures restaurants, and a spirited fundraising effort for the Charles Woodson Clinical Research Fund at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.

The event raised a record $910,000 for the Woodson Fund, which helps U-M physicians and scientists accelerate research seeking cures, improved therapies and better outcomes for childhood diseases.

The day after Event on Main, supporters teed off at the U-M Golf Course for Golf on Main, supporting the Woodson Fund as well as the U-M Athletics Student-Athlete Health and Welfare Fund. The athletics fund helps provide comprehensive care for student-athletes, prioritizing their long-term physical and mental well-being.

Golf on Main raised $105,000, which was split between the funds.

U-M football legends and longtime Mott supporters Brian Griese, Steve Hutchinson and Charles Woodson mingled with guests at both events and took the stage at Event on Main to speak about the need for pediatric research and to encourage additional donations by auctioning off autographed U-M football jerseys.

Event on Main will return to downtown Ann Arbor in June 2023. View photos from Event on Main and Golf on Main.
