Local Modern Woodmen members plan fundraiser for The Muskegon YMCA LIVESTRONG Program


Modern Woodmen of America members in Muskegon are doing their part to help the community. The group will sponsor a fundraiser on March 10, 7:00 PM, to benefit the Muskegon YMCA.


The fundraiser, which will take place at Black Tie for the Y at The Century Club Ballroom at 356 W Western Ave, Muskegon, MI 49440, will include a live auction, cash bar, hors-d’oeuvres, and desserts.


Up to $2,500 of the money raised will be matched by Modern Woodmen through Modern Woodmen’s Matching Fund Program. The funds will be used to support the LIVESTRONG program for cancer survivors in Muskegon.  Through this program cancer, survivors reclaim their lives by focusing on their health, not the disease.


The Matching Fund Program offers Modern Woodmen members nationwide the chance to show their support for a community cause, organization or individual in need through fundraisers. These fundraising projects contribute more than $10 million to community needs across the country each year.


“With this project, every dollar truly counts,” says Jonathan Venlet, local Modern Woodmen volunteer leader. “It’s exciting to be involved in a project that is so important to our community.”


Coordinated by local Modern Woodmen members, the fraternal financial services organization’s Summit chapters, chapters, and youth service clubs provide opportunities for members to take part in social and educational activities and volunteer projects to meet local needs.
