The Greater Ishpeming Commission on Aging was chosen as Organization of the Year.

GINCC was able to raise about $4,000 from the event.

“A lot of our budget comes from event fundraising,” said Bob Hendrickson, GINCC Executive Director. “So probably about 10 to 15 percent of our budget comes directly from events and we haven’t done any this year. So with this we were really reliant on it to help us get it to the end of the year type of thing. It gave us just a little bit of extra breathing room.”
