MUNSING, MI-- A fundraiser scheduled for Thursday in Munising now has a new purpose.
The “Furloughed Fundraiser” aimed to raise money for federal employees affected by the partial government shutdown. Now that the government is open again the event has been turned into a community gathering.
Alger County Action member Johanna Bogater says the fundraiser at the Falling Rock Café and Bookstore will be a celebration that people are back to work. It will have food and music provided by the Falling Rock Acoustic Jammers.
All donations collected will be given to the Alger Community Food Pantry.
The gathering takes place Thursday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Falling Rock Café and Bookstore.
