(05/02/14) - The annual 'Tux and Tennies' Gala took place Saturday night in Genesee County.
In 2013, the gala raised a record breaking $140,000 benefiting the programs and services of the Whaley Children's Center.
They hope to raise more money this year for the Whaley Children's Center.
The Whaley Children's Center is a non-profit group that helps children ages 5 to 17 who suffer abuse or neglect.
The group offers counseling and treatment for children and families in these rough situations.
"We have a mission of really transforming the lives and creating better futures for these children, and we could not do it without the people here and Dave and his team at Grand Blanc Motor Cars and all of our sponsors," said Kevin Roach, president and CEO Whaley Children Center.
