Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Planners of a graduation celebration for Marquette Senior High School seniors joined the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to discuss this annual post-commencement event.

MSHS Project Graduation Chair Jerry Irby and Fundraising Co-Chair Joy Lambros Caron said the event offers a substance-free party to avoid alcohol or drug-related accidents during graduation.

The party takes place at the Superior Dome on June 3rd, 9:30 pm – 5:30 am, and includes many games, activities, music and food.

Irby was instrumental in facilitating the first event in 1986, and says the event has become self-sustaining through 32 years of community support.

Caron said in order to provide free tickets to all graduating seniors, planners count on the generous support of sponsors and fund-raising activities that are held during the course of the year.

She added that they have completed and submitted several grant applications, sent mass mailings to over 300 local businesses for their support and will have one more fundraising event at Buffalo Wild Wings on Wednesday, April 25th.  Tickets for the BWW event are available HERE to print off.
