This year marks the 28th year of the Howard Hanna Annual Choo Choo Chow Chow Campaign for Children’s Free Care Fund, which assure that children never be denied the best medical care available, whether helping children without healthcare pay for treatment or to fund cutting-edge care that insurance may not cover.
To date, Howard Hanna has donated more than $9.1 million to local children’s hospitals in markets the company serves. In Ann Arbor and Southeast Michigan, Howard Hanna offices raised and donated more than $93,000 over the past 4 years for C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.

Catered Barbeque Dinner, Food and Drink
Silent Auction, Games and Raffles
Music, Square Dancing, Line Dancing and so much more.
As always, our goal is to exceed last year’s total funds raised. With your help we CAN achieve this goal! Donations, both big and small, can make a direct and immediate impact on the lives and health of young children.
Here’s how you can help this year’s Hoedown fundraiser:
