Boyne Mountain will be the host site for the fourth annual Paint the Town Red Fund-raiser for the Boyne City Public Schools on April 26 at 6:30 p.m.

The event is exciting and audience engaging as both silent and live auctions take place throughout the night; the live auctions will begin at 8 p.m.

“This event is a major fundraiser for the BCPS. Last year it raised $25,000,” said Dr. Catherine Wonski M.D., Boyne City Booster Foundation Member. “Some of the items funded by last year’s proceeds include safer youth football helmets, writing and jazz workshops, class educational trips, school assemblies, and support for various athletic teams.”

This year Paint The Town Red has several marquee auctions amongst its prizes, including a two-day Mackinac Island Getaway at the Grand Hotel, a Boyne Mountain Gold Pass, a family weekend at Boyne Mountain Lodge, a warm destination five-day trip, and a two-day Sport package getaway including two tickets to your favorite pro sport regular season game.

“This event is only possible with the support of our community and businesses,” said Wonski. “Over 20 businesses support the event with major sponsorship coming from Boyne Mountain and Magnum Hospitality.”

“Boyne Mountain is happy to be the host location for this event, we are excited to be supporting such a great cause,” said Director of Communications at Boyne Resort Erin Ernst. “It’s great to be able to continue being part of such a successful event that funds so many scholastic activities.”

Tickets for the event are $50 per person, and include a heavy Hors d’oeuvres and wine menu, and live musical entertainment from the Detroit based Soul Street from 8 p.m. to Midnight

Tickets may be purchased at Ralph Gillett’s office or the Boyne City High School office.

“Boyne City is such a tight knit community, we all pull together to help support the schools,” said Red Mesa Grill Manager Jessica Mulvaney. “This will be my first time attending a Paint The Town Red—we’ve supported it for the past three years.”
