MARQUETTE, MI— The Detroit Red Wings Alumni versus Yoopers United hockey game raised more than $100,000 on Saturday.

The money will benefit the United Way of Marquette County’s Community Investment Fund. It will go directly back to the community through the United Way’s annual grant funding.

Officials say last year, 24 local nonprofits received funding to continue programs improving the health, education, and financial stability of all Marquette County residents.

The hockey game kicked off the United Way of Marquette County’s annual campaign. More than 3,500 people attended.
