Paint the Peninsula Pink

On Friday afternoon in Watersmeet, the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians presented the Superior Health Foundation with a check for $3,728.86! The funding was raised during the month of October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Players were encouraged to gift their gaming winnings while Lac Vieux Desert Band matched. In the photo, John Erickson of the Northern Waters Casino Resort presents SHF Executive Director Jim LaJoie the winnings.

“Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians has been an incredible partner for our annual Painting the Peninsula Pink event during October,” LaJoie said. “We’re so thrilled with this partnership. The money raised this year was absolutely incredible. What a wonderful holiday gift!”

It’s time to Paint the Peninsula PINK!!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we’re again seeking sponsorship help to raise awareness and monies through our Painting the Peninsula Pink campaign.

Please join SHF for our month-long event we call Painting the Peninsula Pink, proudly presented by the M.E. Davenport Foundation!!

Here’s your opportunity to bid on some very nice silent auction items! For Painting the Peninsula Pink this year, the Superior Health Foundation is introducing an online silent auction open to everyone! All proceeds will go directly to the SHF Breast Health Fund, which provides philanthropic funding for both men and women to help with out-of-pocket breast health expenses not otherwise covered by insurance.

Money raised during the month of October will go directly to the SHF Breast Health Fund which provides philanthropic funding to both men and women in the Upper Peninsula to help with out-of-pocket breast health expenses. In 2022 alone, we provided funding to 10 or more people across the U.P. faced with challenging out-of-pocket breast health expenses. In 2023, we awarded more than $5,000 in funding to seven people. The need is there.
