The fundraiser will take place on Friday, September 23rd at the Holiday Inn Gateway Centre.

The event is called An Evening With Magic Johnson, and is being put on by the Flint Community Schools and Johnson's food company, SodexoMAGIC. They're under contract with the schools to provide food and nutritional expertise. The money raised at the event will go towards renovations within the athletic departments, as well as building three walk-in clinics.

People who attend the event will have the chance to privately meet Magic Johnson, as well as take pictures and bid on sports memorabilia. If you're interested in attending, or would like to sponsor the event, you can contact Dara Benton at 810-760-1211 or via email at
