Hooping for a Cure – 2022

What a night! Our Hooping For A Cure 2022 fundraiser was a BIG success! Thanks to all those who supported the effort on February 22 at LaSalle High School. We appreciate having the boys and girls basketball teams from Mackinaw City and St. Ignace participate in the event. We were able to raise close to $37,000 from donations, sponsorships, auctions and a 50/50 raffle. Proceeds help support our No Cancer Patient Left Behind program and the Oncology Department at Mackinac Straits Health System.
