‘Midnight in the Tropics’ fundraiser to support two Livingston County charities
‘Midnight in the Tropics’, Livingston County’s premier fundraising event, is back for another fun-filled night while benefiting the community. The signature event kicks off at 5 pm on Saturday, February 4, at Crystal Gardens Banquet Center in Howell.
Livingston County Sunrise Rotary Club organizes the fundraiser each year to benefit two local charities and the Livingston Sunrise Rotary Foundation, which distributes grants to other charitable organizations in the community throughout the year.
This year, the two beneficiaries are The Connection Youth Services and Habitat for Humanity. Both organizations provide vital support to the Livingston County community.
The Connection Youth Services consists of three programs (Emergency Shelter, Transitional Living, and Street Outreach) that strive to build positive relationships between youth, their families, and their community.
Habitat for Humanity’s A Brush With Kindness Program provides repairs and updates to families’ existing homes to ensure safety and accessibility.
There’s something for everyone at ‘Midnight in the Tropics’, including an expansive silent and live auction, various games and raffles, a live band, a buffet dinner, open bar and so much more. Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson will return as auctioneer for the live auction, with numerous exciting items up for grabs, such as incredible vacation trips, exclusive experiences and more.
Tickets are currently available to the public, with limited space remaining as the event often sells out. The community can support the event and beneficiaries by purchasing tickets and sponsorships or by donating silent and live auction items.
