In addition to recognizing and honoring the Kalkaska Business and Citizen of the Year, event proceeds will support the Endowment for Kalkaska Area at the Community Foundation.
“This endowment supports the Kalkaska community and grants are decided by our Kalkaska Board Directors. It’s a local giving option with local decision-makers maximizing local impact,” said Alison Metiva, vice-president strategic engagement and programs at the Community Foundation.
Grants from the Endowment in the past have supported the Kalkaska Conservation District, KAIR, the Commission on Aging, Blessings in a Backpack, and, most recently, the expansion of Norte into Kalkaska.
The 2020 Kalkaska Annual Luncheon is being supported by presenting sponsor, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.
