Traverse City Events: Three cheers for the 25 top restaurants, wineries, coffee houses, breweries and bakeries in Northern Michigan who brought the best food and drink in Northern Michigan to treat the guests at the Traverse Magazine/MyNorth.com Red Hot Best Bash at Turtle Creek Casino near Traverse City. Hip, hip, hooray to the entertainers who added so much to the evening. A big thanks to the staff at Turtle Creek Casino who sponsored the event and helped make it a raving success. And a round of applause to all the guests and Red Hot Best honorees who came out to party—because this is what it all added up to: A check for $6,580 (the ticket proceeds) to be divided between three deserving Northern Michigan charities. Check out what these three great organizations are up to:
Manna Food Project: This food bank warehouse distributes surplus food to 34 pantries and agencies throughout Northern Michigan—helping to assure that no one in our blessed region goes hungry.
Leelanau Conservancy: Has been working tirelessly for over two decades to protect the pristine land and water of the spectacularly beautiful Leelanau Peninsula.
Traverse Health Clinic: Is the largest safety net health provider for the uninsured in Benzie, Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties.
