Fundraiser Draws Big Crowd

Marquette County residents wore their hearts on their sleeves tonight, banding together in support of one local boy. It was the “Have the Heart” to “Save a heart” fundraiser for Griffen Helsten.

Griffen is a 9 year old Aspen Ridge student who was recently diagnosed with a rare heart condition. The event was hosted at burger king. 20% of each purchase was donated to the Helsten family.

If you couldn’t make it out tonight, another fundraising effort is being held in Griffens honor later this month on February 25th at the Ishpeming Armory from 6 until 8pm. Donations can also be made at the peninsula bank in ishpeming under the Griffin Helsten “Healing Heart Fund.”
