Superior Health Foundation holds annual gala

The Superior Health Foundation held its sixth annual gala on Saturday in the Great Lakes Rooms at Northern Michigan University. The event, which attracted more than 300 guests, raised more than $70,000 in net proceeds. At the event, SHF presented $10,000 apiece to Camp New Day and Hope Animal Assisted Crisis Response. The remaining net profits will go back into SHF grant funding across the Upper Peninsula. Camp New Day is a one-week camp for children in the U.P. who have incarcerated parents, while Hope Animal Assisted Crisis Response has trained dogs that provide comfort in crisis situations, including suicide, depression, etc. From left are Gene and Carla Champagne of Camp New Day, SHF Executive Director Jim LaJoie and Julia and Nick Meier of Hope Animal Assisted Crisis Response.
