Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome (D.A.D.S.) of Southeast Michigan is a 501 c (3) tax exempt (TID# 46-5441977) charitable organization serving the Down Syndrome community primarily in Macomb and Oakland counties. We are a local chapter of the National D.A.D.S. (Dad’s Appreciating Down Syndrome) organization headquartered in Carmel, Indiana. We come together to support fathers facing the added knowledge that their newborn has Down Syndrome (an intellectual and sometimes medical disability).
We run our organization exclusively with dedicated volunteers. Our major fund raising activity to support our DADS community outreach programs is an annual Golf Outing. This annual event encourages every family member, friend, volunteer, participant, and parent to promote awareness about individuals with Down Syndrome and to celebrate their accomplishments. Once again D.A.D.S. of Southeast Michigan needs your help to make our annual fund raising event a success.
The member presenting this letter has permission of Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome (DADS) of Southeast Michigan to request donations and support for our 5th Annual Golf Outing to be held on Saturday July 18, 2015 at Boulder Pointe Golf Club in Oxford, Michigan.
Thank you in advance for your generous donation and support. The smiles on our youngsters’ faces and the success of D.A.D.S groups both locally and nationally will continue because you care.
Henry Castro, President
Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome of Southeast Michigan
