Get tickets for 2017 Boyne Booster’s Paint The Town Red

BY BENJAMIN J. GOHS, EDITOR

The Seventh annual Paint the Town Red fundraiser will be held from 6 p.m. to midnight on April 8 at the Boyne Mountain Resort Civic Center.

 

The fundraiser was created by the Boyne City Booster Foundation to raise money for Boyne City Public Schools and raises over $50,000 each year.

Entertainment for this year’s event will be provided by the band Main Street Soul, a Detroit 10-Piece Motown Band.

The event features a silent auction, live auction, dancing, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and open bar.

$60 per ticket available at Ralph Gillett’s office at 106 Water St. in Boyne City. Or, call 582-6421

The event raises money for arts, athletics and academics for Boyne public schools.

Wonski said they were looking for a fundraiser that could help kids receive extra opportunities in their current programs.

“We were looking for a fundraiser that would raise a significant amount of funds for all Boyne City school kids and decided that it was just a fun way to raise funds to bring the community together but also make a significant amount of funds for the kids,” said Boyne City Booster’s Foundation Trustee Cathy Wonski.
