March is Developmental Disabilities Month

In honor of March as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, Community Living Services (CLS), Macomb Oakland Regional Center (MORC), and Oakland County Community Mental Health Authority (OCCMHA) are hosting the Third Annual Champions for Achievement Celebration, applauding ability, advancement, and advocacy.

More than 35 microenterprise business owners will have the opportunity to showcase and sell their impressive array of products and services from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on March 21 at the Troy Community Center, 3179 Livernois Road in Troy, a northwesterly Detroit suburb.

This celebration of entrepreneurial spirit, hosted by Charlie Langton of Fox 2 News and WWJ Radio, recognizes Oakland County residents with developmental disabilities who have attained their goals to own and operate a business.

The afternoon festivities also will include talented performances, food and refreshments, and a photo booth.
