DETROIT, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 450 people gathered on Tuesday, October 9, at The Ritz-Carlton Dearborn to honor athletic and community champions at the 18th Annual CATCH Night of Champions. The event featured a dinner, live auction and a Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The event raised $225,000, with more than $38,000 raised by the live auction alone.

Ford Motor Company has been a major supporter of the charity since 1989, and title sponsor of CATCH Night of Champions since 1991.

Inducted into the CATCH Hall of Fame and honored for their many contributions to the community were Detroit Pistons All-Star Guard Richard "Rip" Hamilton, CEO and co-founder of Cornerstone Schools Clark Durant, and Director of Mergers and Acquisitions, MNP Corporation and board member of CATCH, David Levy. The annual Dr. Clarence Livingood Humanitarian Award was awarded to Dr. Ian T. Jackson of Providence Hospital.

All proceeds benefited CATCH, Sparky Anderson's charity for children. Founded in 1987, CATCH raises funds for items and services that improve the quality of life of sick, injured and needy pediatric patients who receive care from Children's Hospital and Henry Ford Hospital. Included is the CATCH Pediatric Mobile Health Programs that provide basic health services for Detroit children who experience barriers to accessing health care.
