St. Louis Center in Chelsea, MI is celebrating our 60th Anniversary in a big way with the support of former University of Michigan Basketball Coach John Beilein helping from the sidelines.

On Thursday October 22, 2020, St. Louis Center will be presenting a “Virtual 60th Anniversary Celebration” on Facebook Live and YouTube at 7:00 p.m.EDT featuring Coach Beilein @JohnBeilein taking a tour of the St. Louis Center campus along with an interview of former players Tim Hardaway, Jr. @T_HardJR and Zack Novak @novak3159.

Hardaway has been in the NBA for the past six years and plays for the Dallas Mavericks, while Novak helped lead Michigan to the Big Ten Championship during the 2011-12 season and was a team captain. They both visited St. Louis Center on June 21, 2012 with Coach Beilein, and proceeded to put on a demonstration of basketball drills for the residents and staff with their teammates. 

At that time, Coach Beilein remarked, “If we can put a smile on the faces of these kids who face so many challenges in their everyday lives, then it’s worth the effort on our part to bring them a little bit of happiness.”

Help us celebrate 60 years of caring for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and raise funds to support the future of St. Louis Center. We’ll take a look back at SLC history and share stories of the impact we’re making in people’s lives today!

You’ll hear from family members and the residents themselves, and see some familiar faces of those who have been part of SLC over the years. For a donation, you will have the opportunity to receive these items autographed by John Beilein:

  • $60 – John Beilein photo
  • $600 – ‘M’ hat
  • $1600 – basketball
