Meet Our Event Chairs

Mary Bassett connected with Open Door at an event hosted at her parish, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in 2019. Though Mary had glimpses of the Open Door when their family first moved to Midland in 2004, this was her first face-to-face introduction with its mission and purpose.

Mary remembers being immediately struck with the welcoming and hospitable nature of Open Door’s campuses. “You don’t necessarily expect to see this level of quality and attention to detail,” Mary said. “It’s not a train station; it’s a home.”

In the summer of 2019, Mary and her husband Mark hosted a fundraising event at their home featuring food prepared by Open Door volunteers. Once again, Mary witnessed firsthand the talent and time poured into each detail of the organization, and invited her close friends to join them in bringing help and hope to neighbors in need.

Mark and Mary Bassett are no strangers to philanthropic work in the tri-cities. As the chairman and CEO of Hemlock Semiconductor, Mark has been a community leader for several years, including serving on the boards of Covenant Hospital and the Saginaw Chamber of Commerce. In 2019, Mark was also the chairperson of the United Way of Saginaw County’s annual campaign.

About Midland's Open Door

Midland’s Open Door desires to see the homeless, hungry and hurting experience the life-transforming power of the gospel of Christ, becoming godly disciples and faithful stewards of all God has given them.

To do this, we meet people at their point of need, transitioning them from a position of crisis to a posture of hope. Next, we walk with them, teaching and modeling how to enjoy God, utilize their gifts to serve others, and live godly, interdependent lives.
