Promised Academic Excellence February fundraising festivities across Mt. Pleasant

An Overview

It might be cold out, but a great way to warm your heart is by giving back. There are plenty of opportunities to give back to the Mt. Pleasant community coming up—from fundraising dinners, galas, special night out events, and even a polar plunge. Here’s how you can get involved with local organizations in their mission to raise funds this February. 

Bowties & Bourbon Event, Mt. Pleasant Discovery Museum

The Mt. Pleasant Discovery Museum invites the community for its annual bourbon-infused culinary competition and fundraising gala on Friday, Feb. 2 from 7 to 11 p.m. Bowties & Bourbon celebrates the museum’s place in the community, and helps ensure funding for future years. 

Museum marketing and communications coordinator, Dev Waslusky, says the event ties back to the museum’s mission to enhance the community by inspiring creativity, learning and curiosity. 

“The museum has become a forefront leader in supporting local schools, young families, and children throughout Michigan,” Waslusky says. “We believe in being an extension of the classroom and offering a space where educational discovery enhances the life of every child that walks through our doors.”

“Research has shown that the pandemic has impacted young children’s educational journeys in unfavorable ways,” continues Waslusky. “We believe we can help our community’s educators and parents work together to kickstart a new era of play-based learning and social skills.”

Last year’s event raised almost $50,000, and Waslusky is hoping this year’s event can top that number. The event is sponsored by Graff Mt. Pleasant, Krapohl Ford & Lincoln, Buck’s Run, The Morey Foundation, and Fisher Companies. 

The 21+ up event includes an evening of presentations, speeches, music, dancing, dining, and drinking. Tickets are $100 each, or free with a $250 sponsorship. Each event ticket includes two drink tickets. 

“Everyone will be able to purchase ‘bourbon bucks’ that will help support their favorite restaurant(s) toward winning the culinary competition,” Waslusky says. “There will be a bowtie contest midway through the event, and a photobooth and photographer to capture the moments and memories of the night.”
