A benefit for Mott Children's Hospital


“MUSIC FOR MOTT” is a special fundraiser for C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. U-M violin and composition student (and Dexter native) Stuart Carlson was born 1 lb., 13 oz. in Mott Hospital on March 8th, 1996.  A surviving twin, he has met his many life challenges (including autism) with courage and strength.  A believer in supporting his community through music, Stuart decided to turn his required college recital into a fundraiser for the hospital that saved his life.  He has recruited some of the best talent the University of Michigan has to offer to help him raise money for children who are fighting for their lives at Mott.  Presented by Manpower, Inc. of Southeastern Michigan, we would like to thank Michigan Medicine and The Ark for their wonderful support.
