Each year the Hurley Benefit Ball in Flint raises money for patients at its medical center.
This year, the funds will go to the Children's Hospital.
A young woman and a little girl have overcome health issues and will be this year's patient ambassadors.
18-year-old Jakeya Thorton of Flint has struggled with trips to the emergency room for diabetes.
2-year-old Rosie has had surgery on her lungs and breathes through a ventilator.
Ashley Liddell-Ruffin of Flint said, "It is clearly the best choice for my family. Being able to bring Clarisa here that night when she was very sick, and being able to know that she was in good hands."
The 34th Hurley Benefit Ball, themed "Evening Under the Stars," will take place on March 7th.
