Beacon House party a great way to support great cause

If you’re out and about today and looking for something to do that will be both fun and supportive of a great cause, consider the Reverse Draw Raffle dinner and party for Beacon House.

The casual fundraiser is set to start at 6:30 tonight at the Masonic Temple Ballroom in downtown Marquette.

Beacon House is the Upper Peninsula’s Hospitality House for patients and families coming to the Marquette area with medical emergencies and serious illnesses.

The tickets aren’t cheap: $100. But that price includes a prime rib dinner catered by Elizabeth’s Chop House, along with other games and prizes, although ticket holders do not need to be present to win. The lucky ticket will be the very last one drawn tonight.

“This event, sponsored by Checker Bus, is one of the most crazy fundraisers we do. The excitement builds throughout the night as each losing ticket is drawn, and our dinner guests anticipate who the final winning ticket holder will be,” Mary Dowling of Beacon House said in a news release.

Tickets can be purchased at Beacon House between noon and 4 at the door tonight.

Sounds like a great time!
