The Julian Boivin Courage for Cures Foundation cordially invites you to the 6th Brave Knight benefit for pediatric brain tumor research to be held on Friday, Nov. 11 at the beautiful Pine Lake Country Club in West Bloomfield.

  • Cocktails and strolling dinner
  • Live and silent auctions
  • Grand prize raffle trips
  • Live entertainment with The Dan Rafferty Band


All proceeds from the Brave Knight will fund research to arm kids with a fighting chance against the deadliest brain tumors. Since 2011, the Brave Knight event has raised nearly $400,000 for research at outstanding institutions around the world and patient programs at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Cocktail attire is suggested.

Complimentary valet parking or $10 off Uber trip each way sponsored by Penske Automotive Group.




The Julian Boivin Courage for Cures Foundation is inspired by 5-year-old Julian Boivin of Bloomfield Hills, and his courageous 7-month battle against DIPG, a terminal brain cancer that typically affects children between the ages of 4 and 11. With no known cause or cure, Julian’s friends, family and countless supporters carry on Julian’s fight through Courage for Cures, a 501(c)3 dedicated to funding research that will ultimately give kids a fighting chance against DIPG and other devastating brain tumors.
