ABOUT THE BALL
The initial concept of Melmark parents Bob and Kathy Trainor, the biennial Dream Maker’s Ball has been raising friends and funds for the children and adults of Melmark since 2001. Together families, friends, and community partners have contributed more than $1.5 million in net revenue over the past 17 years.
The most recent Dream Maker’s Ball in April of 2016 welcomed 500 guests and raised more than $500,000 in gross revenue for the benefit of Melmark’s programs and services. The ball is an opportunity to help children and adults overcome challenges and celebrate achievements. All funds raised through the Dream Maker’s Ball support various educational, residential, rehabilitation programs, and facilities at Melmark. With continued loyalty from our long-standing partners and new, we look forward to a landmark 2018 Dream Maker’s Ball!
