The Superior Health Foundation annual gala is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021, in the Ball Room on the campus of Northern Michigan University in Marquette. With COVID-19 and the worldwide pandemic, the event is subject to change. In the event a live gathering cannot be held, SHF will again throw a live virtual event.
Proceeds from the gala will benefit SHF. In addition, the SHF Gala Planning Committee will select two, health-centered projects ($10,000 or less) in the U.P. and award those monies at the gala. SHF will ask the agencies receiving funding to invite employees and guests to the gala.
There have been many unforeseen challenges due to COVID-19. Yet, many Upper Peninsula health-centered, non-profits have responded with innovative, engaging ways to continue their work. Thus, the 2021 Gala Committee recommended that we provide funding to two initiatives that were developed because of the changes to our operating environment and will be sustained or expanded as we work through the pandemic.
