A thread where all charitable events Michael is involved in 2016 can be reported.   They can range from MBC involvement to golf competitions to his other charitable work he will no doubt do throughout the year.  

Firstly to be reported is wonderful news concerning the Michael Bolton Charities and their new projects they have announced.  Here is link which gives insight to two Music Therapy programmes they are starting with one being at the Clifford Beers Clinic which is the charity dear to the heart of Michael's late beloved mother, Helen with other being at BH Care-Umbrella Centre for Domestic Violence with both being located in New Haven, CT.

They are also launching a programme to start a Family Justice Centre in New Haven.

Both projects are detailed in this poster issued by MBC.

Thanks for starting the thread Sylvia, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

Here is info on a grant from MBC:

The Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence Services (UCDVS) received a grant of $3,500 from the Michael Bolton Charities, Inc. to continue and expand its music therapy program for victims of domestic violence.

The music therapy program will now be offered twice a week at UCDVS safe houses.
 
The program, lead by Music Therapist Cyd Slotoroff, has had a positive impact on the families at the shelter. The children and mothers gather together for sing-a-longs and the moms with babies to learn to sing lullabies.

“The moms have been able to create new nonviolent experiences and positive memories with their children,” said Jane Adamik, Child Advocate, UCDVS.  “The children look forward to seeing Cyd every week and ask me when she will be back again.” 
 
The Michael Bolton Charities, Inc., founded in 1993, is dedicated to assisting at risk children and women through education and effective programs, creating social awareness to broaden horizons and expanding opportunities for youth across socioeconomic and multicultural lines.
 
BHcare’s The Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence Services (UCDVS) is dedicated to increasing awareness of domestic violence and its effect on the community, empowering those victimized by providing advocacy and safe and effective services, and to working for social change to eliminate domestic violence. 

Each year UCDVS provides free and confidential services for more than 6,000 victims and their children. Learn more at www.bhcare.org.

Keeping thread up-to-date and have already posted this in 2015 but as the day has now arrived thought would put on here and Michael is in Phoenix, Arizona tonight at the Phoenix Biltmore Hotel where Childhelp are holding their 12th Annual Dream Gala and Michael is the guest entertainer.

Have found out that if you follow Childhelp on Twitter at https://twitter.com/Childhelp at 5.20 pm Vanessa Ramirez will be LIVE on periscope TV on the red carpet, at the event, so might just see Michael.   Will certainly check link when posted, which I hope is what they are going to do, and obviously if MB is shown will post link over to here.

Little bit of further information is that the event is SOLD OUT.

Unfortunately, Michael did not appear on red carpet as predicted possibly he was already in hotel with band and did not want singled out when he wasn't there as a "paying/donating guest" but the entertainment.   Fortunately though, we do have two pics of him from Childhelp and first is of him on stage and second is "back view" of him where you can see Melissa Peterman, who was emcee for the evening, in interview and also in pic, to Michael's right, is John O'Hurley and Maksim Chmerkoskiy from Dancing With The Stars.

Further two pics of Michael at Childhelp event last night and these come courtesy of Brian Osback (skater) who, in first, was actually interviewing Michael on red carpet (don't know how to find interview but will keep looking) and other is a pretty good selfie of Brian and although he claims Michael was "photobombing" his shot think we would all agree it was a pretty deliberate "photobomb" from Brian and he captured Michael well in the background talking to the two ladies who are responsible and the founders of the Childhelp Charity in Arizona.

Hi Sylvia, thanks for pic description. May I ask what's a photo bomb? Just wondering. :) Take care Sylvia and thanks again. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

The term "photo bombing" I believe means when someone appears unexpectedly in a photo and especially a celebrity.  They may be at an event as Michael is in this one but he and generally they, are totally unaware of the photo being taken and in a lot of cases the person taking the pic hasn't seen them until the photo is taken and looked at to see if any good and then person is spotted in background.  Sometimes when people jump in just as a photo is being taken and they get their face in it's also called photo bombing.   Obviously a newish term and I do hope I've got description right and if anyone can clarify better than me please do so !!! :)
