2023 Winners Cup Benefit
Saturday, May 6, 2023 | Egypt Valley Country Club
In 2004, the Winners Cup Benefit was created to raise funding for the West Michigan Down syndrome community. Proceeds from the annual event benefit the Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan Foundation (DSAWMF), raising the value of our endowment to over $1.6 million and creating opportunities for us to support individuals with Down syndrome.
The 2023 benefit will be held on Saturday, May 6th at beautiful Egypt Valley Country Club in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Guests will enjoy the running of the Kentucky Derby during a lively cocktail hour, followed by an engaging dinner program featuring guest speaker Kayla McKeon, the first registered lobbyist with Down syndrome. The evening concludes with an auction and ample opportunity for networking and dancing.
