Big money

More than 300 people attended the Superior Health Foundation’s annual gala Sept. 17, 2016, on the campus of Northern Michigan University. With proceeds from the gala and money raised through other efforts, the organization has been able to grant more than $1.7 million to local and regional health-related causes since it was founded. Applications are currently being accepted until Dec. 15 for the Superior Health Foundation’s 2018 grant period. (Journal photo by Bud Sargent)
