Mackinac Straits Health Systems
Educational and Fundraising Events for the Community

MSHS has some key events each year that raise money, educate, or bring attention to a community need.

Hooping for a Cure – 2023

Another successful Hooping Event! The 15th Hooping for Cure was held February 6, 2023 at LaSalle High School and featured the Boys & Girls Basketball teams from St. Ignace and Engadine. Close to $35,000 was raised for the No Cancer Patient Left Behind Program to help our local oncology patients at Mackinac Straits Health System. Since 2009, Hooping has raised close to $320,000! Thanks to all those who supported this year’s event. We are so grateful to all our sponsors, donors, volunteers and players who made it possible. If you would still like to make a donation go to our Donate page, or the MSH Foundation office, (906) 643-0443.


Jewel at Mackinac Golf Outing

Despite the weather, our 20th Jewel at Mackinac Golf Outing turned out to be another great success! We are amazed at the dedication of our participants, sponsors, hosts and volunteers. They showed up in the rain and continued to support our efforts. A huge thank you to everyone who persevered in the rain. We are so fortunate to have such wonderful support from the Mackinac Island community and all of our guests. We couldn’t have made it without Grand Hotel, Carriage Tours, Shepler’s and Star Line. Proceeds help the Mackinac Straits Health Foundation support the Mackinac Straits Health System, including the Mackinac Island Medical Center. SAVE THE DATE for the 21st Jewel event, August 24, 2023!
