Craft beer tasting fundraiser tonight

The Marquette-Alger Great Start Collaborative is sponsoring an evening of Michigan Craft beer tasting tonight, complete with snacks as well as silent and live auctions.

All proceeds from the event will be used to support safe sleep practices for infants. Funds will be used to purchase Halo Sleep Sacks and cribs for new moms in Marquette and Alger Counties who may need them.

The agency has also dedicated resources to printed and other media types of information for new parents on the importance of safe sleep.

Tickets for the event are $25 each and can be purchased at the Lake Superior Community Partnership or by calling Kathy Lammi at 226-5157.

The craft beer tasting event will take place from 6-8 p.m. tonight at Upfront and Company, 102 E. Main Street, Marquette.
