Up North Lodge 'Bike Night' benefits UPaws

By  | 

GWINN, Mich. (WLUC) - Each week through the beginning of October, The Up North Lodge in Gwinn holds an event called Bike Night.

The Bike Night event serves to pair a local business or group with a non-profit, and the proceeds from the evening go to that organization.

On Tuesday, the Bike Night held paired Select Realty and UPaws.

"Our company is a local company, we love to do community service here and support anything else that's local," says Select Realty co-owner, Andi Goriesky. "UPaws of course is something that's near and dear to my heart and everyone else in my company supports it very well so we're hoping to make a lot of money for them tonight."

The goal of the evening was to raise over $2,000 through 50/50 raffles, bucket raffles, and food and drink specials.

Some of the raffle prizes included technology, tailgating baskets, even tickets to the upcoming Packers vs. Lions game.

All proceeds from the event will be donated directly to UPaws.
