Native Detroiter and acclaimed actor/comedian David Alan Grier will be the featured entertainer at THE GUILD of St. John Hospital and Medical Center’s 53rd annual fundraising dinner on June 5, 2013 at Penna’s of Sterling, in Sterling Heights, MI. The funds raised at the dinner will benefit St. John Hospital and Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
GUILD officials are extremely excited to have Grier return to his hometown where he has so many fond memories and participate in an event that will generate funding for such an important area – The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
“We’re looking forward to David’s performance and expect his celebrity to help us maximize attendance and funding for such an important cause,” said GUILD Dinner Chairman David Kesner. “We’re also looking forward to honoring three Guild members who have tirelessly supported THE GUILD over the years.”

Liggett, Jr. of Grosse Pointe Shores who will receive the Philanthropic Services Award; Ali Rabbani, MD of Grosse Pointe Shores, who will be awarded with the Physician of the Year Award; and The Ahee Family, of the Grosse Pointes, who will receive the Sr. Verenice McQuade Distinguished Service Award.
