SHF selects gala partner for 2024!

The Superior Health Foundation is pleased to announce that it has selected the Northern Lights Child Advocacy Center as its partner for the 2024 Annual Gala.

Based in Marquette, its mission is to help and serve all child survivors of physical and sexual abuse, neglect, human trafficking, and witness to violence. Children accessing its services are from all socioeconomic backgrounds, all races, genders, and from all parts of Marquette County and surrounding rural areas.

At least $15,000 in funding from the gala, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 28, in the Ball Rooms at the Northern Center, would be used to purchase supplies and technology vital to the services provided by the children’s advocacy center. These services include client intake and crisis counseling, forensic interviews, case coordination services, coordination of a multidisciplinary team including the prosecutor’s office, law enforcement and children’s protective services, and community prevention education.

“We applaud the work that the Northern Lights Child Advocacy Center provides to those who so desperately need its services,” said Jim LaJoie, executive director of the Superior Health Foundation. “It’s a terrific organization and we are thrilled to partner with Executive Director Sarah Zyburt and her team.”

The gala is again proudly presented by the Marshfield Medical Center – Dickinson. Thank you!

Sponsorship packets were mailed on Tuesday to organizations all across the Upper Peninsula.
