September 2015 - Former Packer LeRoy Butler wowed a record crowd for the 17th annual M&M Area Community Foundation Tailgate Fundraiser.  The event, held on August 28th at Pullman House, was attended by over 300 people in support of the MMACF’s mission for charitable giving in Menominee and Marinette counties.

“LeRoy was an excellent guest speaker and really connected with those in attendance,” said Lisa Fernstrum, incoming MMACF Board President.  “He deserves to be commended for the extra time and attention he gave to guests in support of their contributions. The crowd was overwhelmed when he autographed an additional football for our live auction,” she noted.

Among the many items donated by community members and businesses for auction, several were attention grabbers:  a week’s stay on Sanibel Island, Packer tickets (four club seats), and several sports, fitness, and food and refreshment packages.

“As always, Bill Michaels was a great Master of Ceremony,” noted Paula Gruszynski, MMACF Executive Director.  “Together with auctioneer Jan Scoville, Bill led us to a new fundraising record for this event. And…none of this would have been possible without months of hard work from our team of volunteers, led by Tailgate Chair, Barb Peterson,” Gruszynski concluded. 

The MMACF extends special thanks to the following for their support:  the MMACF Youth Advisory Committee, Tailgate Marketing chair Laura Rowe, For Love or Money competition chair Daela Reiswitz and Frozen Tundra chairs Kathy and John Willmann.

The M&M Area Community Foundation looks forward to continuing to highlight their work across Marinette and Menominee counties during Community Foundation Week, November 12th – 18th.  For more information on planned activities, please contact Executive Director Paula Gruszynski at 715-340-6567 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
