Tickets are now available for the Mid Michigan Community College Foundation’s annual fundraiser – A Northern Tradition. The twelfth annual event will be held from 6-9 p.m. April 21 at Jay’s Sporting Goods in Clare.

For a $50 ticket, each attendee receives a $25 gift certificate to Jay’s Sporting Goods, an exclusive historical print by artist Terry L. Dickinson, and a chance to win a $1,000 gift certificate to Jay’s. About 14 area restaurants will also be serving free food, and a number of interesting demonstrators will make it an evening to remember.

Last year, more than 800 people attended A Northern Tradition, allowing the MMCC Foundation to raise more than $120,000 for student and community advancement. The event has raised more than $1 million since it began.

The Foundation’s largest program, Students of Promise, was established to promote academic
achievement, cultural awareness, and higher education to academically promising middle and high school students who face significant challenges in their lives.
