Dec. 3 Music & Merriment Holiday Fundraiser Postponed

For the safety of the community, the Development Council of MidMichigan Health Foundation in Alpena has made the decision to postpone its Music & Merriment holiday fundraiser scheduled for Friday, Dec. 3, 2021. All those who have purchased a ticket will be contacted by phone for a full refund.

“While a difficult conversation, the decision was necessary due to the rise of COVID cases in the community, as well as the potential of increased virus transmission due to expected gatherings during the hunting and Thanksgiving holiday season,” said Ann Diamond, director, MidMichigan Health Foundation. “The Committee will reconvene in the coming weeks to set a rescheduled date in 2022. We appreciate the understanding and support of the community during this time of change and uncertainty.”

Although the Music & Merriment event is postponed, the raffle for the Yamaha side-by-side will take place on Friday, Dec. 3, at 9 p.m. Only 350 tickets will be sold at $100 each and a few tickets are still available by contacting Diamond.

Those who would like more information on the postponed event, purchasing a raffle ticket or about more giving opportunities at MidMichigan may contact Diamond at (989) 356-7738, or visit
