Rainforest Cafe

The Rainforest Gives Back Program is brand new this year. We used to have a fundraising program that was similar but we weren’t seeing anyone utilizing it. I was chosen by our Vice President of Restaurants to be on a team to rework the program. We completely rebranded. A new name, new images, and just a better program that allows us to give more back to the non-profit organizations to continue their amazing work in our local communities. We are doing something extra special for the Down Syndrome Guild as well.

The Gateway has been involved with the Clarkston Cultural Arts Group for 4 years as the host event site. We feel that supporting the Clarkston Arts is essential to keeping artistic dreams alive. The money that is raised at the fundraiser is vital to their yearly success and we are happy to be a part of such a great event. 

Our SCAMP participation has spanned two years, this being our first as the host event, to help with their fundraising efforts to support kids and adults with special needs at the summer camp which last for five weeks.

Emilia is a 7th grader at Sherman middle school in Holly. In many ways she’s a typical 13 year old girl. She loves music, shopping and spending time with her friends. Emilia is also on the autism spectrum. She was first diagnosed as high functioning autistic at the age of 4. When she was first diagnosed her father and I were not sure what to expect for her as she grew. There was a lot of fear and grief for the life our beautiful girl wouldn’t have.
