Details:  Twenty-five local charities are gearing up to compete in the University Club of MSU’s Big Bang-quet Community Charity Challenge, sponsored by Michigan State University Federal Credit Union and the Capital Region Community Foundation.  All 24 organizations are posted on the University Club’s website, and the public is invited to “vote” for their favorite charities.  A “vote” is a $5 tax-deductible donation to the Capital Region Community Foundation.  Online voting will close on Monday, March 24.  On Tuesday, March 25, at 5:30 p.m., the public is invited to a reception at the University Club, to place final votes and then witness the final outcome.  Every organization will receive a check for 90% of the funds raised through voting.  In addition, the two organizations that raise the most votes will receive a $10,000 or $5,000 credit toward a fundraising event at the University Club.  In addition, the organization with the most individual donors will win a $5,000 credit toward a fundraising event at the University Club! So…everyone is a winner, and one organization is a BIG winner!
