|Fundraiser at Mirage Banquet Center tonight for needy students.|
Another busy school year has started and once again the Macomb Intermediate School District is working to provide the county's homeless population with backpacks and books, shoes and socks, whatever supplies they might need to be successful.
Tonight's wine tasting fundraiser presented by the Clinton Valley Kiwanis Club goes a long way to support these efforts.
The annual event known as "A Tuscan Evening" from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Mirage Banquet Center, 16980 18 Mile Road in Clinton Township will feature global varieties of wine and a taste of Italy buffet dinner, silent auction and raffle, doors prizes. Wines tasted will be available for purchase.
"The Kiwanis sponsored event (tonight) is our biggest fundraiser of the year," said Kathleen Kropf, MISD homeless education liaison. "Please help spread the word so we can continue to give these students the educational support they need."
Last year the MISD assisted 877 homeless students in Macomb County.
Tickets for tonight's event are $30 per person (age 21-up) and can be purchased at the door. For further information on the fundraiser or donations contact: Anna Gloria at 586-286-3983 or Anita Frederick at 586-246-6289.
I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can do.
