Mid Michigan Community College Foundation held its thirteenth annual fundraiser, A Northern Tradition at Jay’s last Saturday.
A Northern Tradition is the Foundation’s biggest fundraiser. Thanks to a special effort on the part of corporate sponsors and ticket buyers, the event has raised well over $1 million in the last 12 years.

The event, which is held each April at Jay’s Sporting Goods in Clare, raises money for the Mid Michigan Community College Foundation. The proceeds from this event allow the Foundation to support the College’s services to the community through scholarships, program development, improved facilities, and programs for at-risk youth.

Hundreds of attendees enjoyed an evening of exclusive shopping and exceptional food provided by local food vendors last weekend. Both the store and entry were crowded with people enjoying the annual event.

Every ticket holder received a $25 gift certificate, which was donated by Jay’s Sporting Goods, and an exclusive limited edition print by feature artist, Katrina Case-Soper, who is also the first feature artist to also be an alumnus of Mid Michigan Community College.
