What is Dining for Kids?

Thirteen years ago, Karen Baker was both a family consultant and board member at Allen Creek. When she heard the school was having some financial difficulties, she simply said, “Let’s have a dinner and raise some money. We can help with scholarships.” In just one month, Karen and a group of teachers, fellow board members and parents did just that. Over the years, Dining for Kids, or D4K, took place at several local venues, including Zanzibar, The Ann Arbor City Club, and The Polo Fields. Carrying on this tradition, the D4K committee continues its goal to raise funds to support Allen Creek families and programs.  This is the third year The Last Word and LIVE are hosting D4K. It is also the third year that Morgan & York is curating our wine-tasting.
