‘Chain of Love’ fundraiser record broken

After holding its annual “Chain of Love” fundraiser to raise money for the local Area 1 Special Olympics, the Bay College and LSSU Regional Center chapter of Business Professionals of America raised a record amount of $638 in donations that has been awarded to the Special Olympics program of Delta, Schoolcraft and Menominee counties. There is a $50 discrepancy between the check and the amount raised due to an additional $50 donation coming in after the picture was taken. This surpasses the previous record set in 2020 of $500. This new record was due to the efforts and participation of Bay College and LSSU Regional Center staff and students, along with the community at large.
