The annual Beaumont Bocce Classic event was held at Palazzo di Bocce in Lake Orion. More than 200 guests attended the fundraiser and enjoyed a fun, competitive evening of bocce ball in addition to a strolling dinner and participation in a silent auction that earned $2,800 in donations. The evening's proceeds totaled over $160,000, benefiting the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Beaumont Hospital, Troy. The 24-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) treats high-risk, premature newborns of 28 weeks or more gestation. A special care nursery is available to handle needs of low-risk newborns.
