McKenzie Autumn Benefit to Feature Dueling Pianos on Sept. 25

UPDATE 9/14/21

Although we were hopeful that we could hold the Autumn Benefit this year, the COVID delta transmission rate continues to increase making an indoor banquet event risky.

We are so appreciative of all of the volunteers, sponsors, and ticket purchasers who were working toward making this another successful event.

For everyone who purchased a sponsorship and/or tickets, you will be contacted in the next few days.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you at the next event!

With music and merriment in store, the McKenzie Health System’s Annual Autumn Benefit will feature dueling pianos on September 25. The special evening will also include a wonderful buffet dinner, silent auction and 50/50 drawing and a wine pull.

The Autumn Benefit will begin at 6 p.m., with doors opening at 5:30 p.m., at Beagio’s Reception Hall, located at 5795 Sanilac Rd. in Kingston. Individual tickets, which cost $100, and sponsorships can be purchased by contacting Nina Barnett at 810-648-6127 or by ordering online at

“We are thrilled to bring back our annual Autumn Benefit this year,” said Nina Barnett, Public Relations and Foundation Coordinator. “This event has been a part of McKenzie for decades and we are looking forward to the excitement and entertainment of dueling pianos. We are also incredibly grateful to our sponsors and supporters for their donations and ongoing help.”

The Autumn Benefit committee is planning the finishing touches, which includes safety measures for Covid. We will be evaluating CDC guidelines and recommendations along with local transmission rates as we move closer to the event date. If the event is cancelled, refunds will be available.
