After a very successful 10th Annual Award-Winning Big Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram Great Lakes Grand Prix presented by Blue Chip Casino, Hotel & Spa offshore powerboat race, Visit Michigan City LaPorte provided a fiscal boost to Michigan City Emergency Management Volunteers.
Their mission is to minimize the impact of catastrophic events on our community. When nature or man-made disaster descends upon Michigan City, Emergency Management Volunteers are activated to provide emergency services to the community and they are invaluable when it comes to keeping everything and everyone safe and running smoothly during the Great Lakes Grand Prix, the Boat Parade and Taste of Michigan City.
LPCCVB presented the volunteer group with a check in the amount of $2,463. The money was raised through an annual silent auction that takes place at the Great Lakes Grand Prix on Sunday each year. The volunteers do amazing things for the race, parade and the entire community. In 2019 Great Lakes Grand Prix will celebrate their 11th anniversary on August 1-4. This is the CVB’s signature event and we could not do it without Michigan City Emergency Management.
