Help Us Honor our Lakeshore’s Grandest Volunteer Heroes

submitted by J.J. Lewis, Chief Development Officer, United Way of the Lakeshore


United Way of the Lakeshore, our Board of Directors and staff, and Live United Heroes Celebration Planning Committee, cordially invites you and your guests to an evening dedicated to honoring our Lakeshore’s grandest volunteers and heroes!

They are your neighbors, your friends, and your coworkers. They sit in our classrooms. They bag your groceries or work in our factories. People who carry on with their daily lives while at the same time touching the lives of others. The person who faces adversity and is inspired to help others. The person who devotes themselves to make life better for someone else. They are the EVERYDAY HEROES who make our Lakeshore a better place to live, work, and play.

Please join us on Thursday, May 4 starting at 5:30 pm at the VanDyke Mortgage Convention Center in downtown Muskegon. Tickets are $35 per person and include heavy hors d’oeuvres. There will also be a cash bar, silent auction, celebration, and jail! Be sure to get your ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card when you purchase your ticket(s)!

In addition to the electrifying fun, we’ll be celebrating our various awardees, including our Legacy of Caring, Spirit of the Lakeshore, Agency of the Year, Community Impact Leaders, and Volunteers of the Year.
