LSCP to celebrate virtually
MARQUETTE — The Lake Superior Community Partnership will host its Annual Celebration virtually at 4 p.m. Thursday.
This event is the LSCP’s largest fundraiser of the year. All proceeds benefit economic development in Marquette County. During the celebration, they will also be honoring this year’s Distinguished Service Award winners. The individual recipient for 2021 is Scott Erbisch, Marquette County Administrator. Scott is very involved in many community groups and organizations. He currently serves as an LSCP Board Member, a United Way of Marquette County Board Member, is a Marquette County Ambassador and was recently appointed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to the Michigan Municipal Services Authority Board and Executive Committee.
This year’s business DSA recipient is Eagle Mine. Projects Eagle Mine has helped launch include Accelerate U.P. and the Marquette-Alger Technical Middle College. Additionally, their recent contribution to the Love on Local program, and the launch of their own program, Rockin Local, has promoted local shopping at a time when it is needed most. With countless other contributions, Eagle Mine has stood out as a top economic driver for our community.
This year’s silent auction will be held online from March 8-12. The virtual event will feature an introduction to the incoming LSCP CEO, Sarah Lucas, and farewell to longtime CEO Amy Clickner.
