ENJOY LIFE Goal #7 is a celebration of events supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oakland & Macomb Counties and honoring the life of Stanley Ian Babinski. It is our mission to strive to fulfill Stanley’s final goal to ENJOY LIFE. Through the generous support of the community, over $55,000 has been raised thus far. Most recently, over 250 members of the community came together on December 8, Stanley’s birthday, to celebrate Stanley at the Capital Banquet Center. We also celebrated a Walk for the Future at Westview Orchards on October 14, a Euchre night, and are excited for our February event — Seuss and Sangria, which will be held on February 1 at Cherry Creek Golf Club. Thank you to everyone who has chosen to become a sponsor, purchased an ENJOY LIFE shirt, put up a yard sign, attended an event, and shared their words of encouragement. THANK YOU AND ENJOY LIFE!!

About the Enjoy Life Campaign: Goal #7
On 3/7/2010, we lost Stanley Ian Babinski. Stanley's seventh goal was to ENJOY LIFE. He had six other goals, which included beating his illness, getting a degree, moving out of the house and others. But the one than resonates the most is his 7th goal - Enjoy Life! We would like to see Enjoy Life on everyone’s’ list. Be it the 1st goal or the 10th goal. We strive to fulfill Stanley’s final goal as he battled his cancer trying to do so.
Everyday in our community, county, state and country we witness violence, hate, bullying and other negative and hurtful expressions towards one another. This may be a little bit Utopian in nature, however, we have to start somewhere, one person at a time, sending a positive message of compassion, hope, love and enjoyment.
All net proceeds will be given to these two non-profits organizations: 1) 80% of the net proceeds will go to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oakland and Macomb Counties, 2) 20% of the net proceeds will go to the Stay Strong Stan – Stanley Ian Babinski Memorial Scholarship for Romeo High School, a fund within the Four County Community Foundation.
