The Annual Support Committee of MidMichigan Health Foundation’s Development Council serving Alpena recently hosted the fifth annual Clays for a Cause sporting clay shoot at the Sportmen’s Club in Alpena. This year nine teams participated and more than $6,600 was raised. Proceeds will go to the Medical Center to help fund vital patient enhancements that will provide advanced technology and more comfortable surroundings for patients and their families.
