Applied Innovation to Host 4th Annual Casino Royale Fundraiser

Grand Rapids, MI, September 1, 2022, – Applied Innovation, a Grand Rapids-based technology company, today announced their fourth annual charity event: Casino Royale. The event will benefit Children’s Healing Center, a non-profit organization also located in Grand Rapids. Last year, a total of $28,220 was raised.This year, the goal is to surpass that number.

“This event was an idea that was brought to us years ago… it’s a great way to spend time with our clients and employees while supporting something that is so important to the community,” said John Lowery, President and CEO of Applied Innovation, “Children’s Healing Center provides tremendous services for kids in need and that’s why we continue to host this fundraiser. It’s just a good thing.”

As the nation’s first year-round recreation center where kids with weak immune systems can play in a safe space, Children’s Healing Center provides a wide range of programs that emphasize research-based play, socialization, and learning. They have one goal in mind: provide a place for all families to experience the healing power of play, friendships, and belonging. The center is open to any child from birth to 26 years old who is immune-compromised and their family.

“We are proud to join Applied Innovation for the 4th annual Casino Royale fundraiser. Not only are they a valued vendor partner, but they are also a steadfast supporter of our mission,” said Melissa Block, Director of Growth & Development at CHC, “Thanks to this event, and the generosity of the Applied Innovation family, even more families who have a child with a weak immune system have opportunities for fun, friendships, and community in our safe and clean environment.”

Casino Royale will take place on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 at 6:30PM and will be held at Applied Innovation HQ located at 5555 Glenwood Hills Parkway SE, Grand Rapids, MI, 49512.
