The annual Superior Health Foundation Gala is hoping to raise money for diabetes outreach this weekend. The gala will be raising money for the foundation itself as well as the Upper Peninsula Diabetes Outreach Network, also known as UPDON.
The gala will feature auctions for vacation getaways as well as live music from Piano Wars, a pair of dueling pianists from Detroit. The foundation says these funds are going to a very good cause.
"They do such great work in the community and region that we have an opportunity here to raise some good funding, pay for a service that without this fundraising effort, probably would not be possible," said Superior Health Foundation Executive Director Jim LaJoie.
The gala will be at the Holiday Inn in Marquette from 6 p.m. to midnight. Tickets are $100 per person, $150 per couple. The deadline to make a reservation is noon, Wednesday. You can call the Superior Health Foundation at (906) 225-6914 to reserve a seat.
