“Mom Prom” held as fundraiser for local family

MARQUETTE — On Friday evening, the 4th annual Marquette County Mom Prom was held at the Masonic Ballroom, as a fundraiser to benefit a local family in need.

The proceeds from the event, featuring dancing, cocktails, food, and a silent auction, will go to support eight-year-old, William Chittle of Negaunee. Since he was an infant, Will has been challenged with three unrelated conditions.

He has undergone over 18 surgeries and lives with feeding and cecestomy tubes. Will says wants to be a scientist one day so he can make life easier for kids who are born with disabilities.

The prom sold out an hour and a half after tickets became available.
