Birmingham, Mich. – On June 28 at the Chamber’s monthly Member Coffee event, the Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber presented a check for $18,000 to more than a dozen nonprofit organizations for their hard work and dedication during the Birmingham Village Fair.
The 55th Annual Birmingham Village Fair took place May 31-June 3 at Shain Park in downtown Birmingham. The four-day event featured carnival rides, games and food. This year, there were more than 15 nonprofits participating in the event. Members of these nonprofit groups volunteered to clean up the park grounds, working to create both a clean and positive experience for everyone in attendance.
“Our nonprofit partners play a key role in the overall success of the Village Fair in terms of keeping the grounds clean and bringing awareness of the great things they are doing in the community,” said Chamber President Joe Bauman. “Thanks to the generosity of North America Midway which operates the fair, and our presenting sponsor United Shore, we have donated more than $100,000 in the past seven years to help support these amazing organizations.”
The benefactors of this year’s Village Fair include ADOPT MORE, Axis Music Foundation, Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber Foundation, Birmingham Bloomfield Community Coalition, Birmingham Command Officers Assn., Birmingham Education Foundation, Birmingham Family YMCA, Birmingham Lions Club, Birmingham Optimist Club, Birmingham Police Officers Assn., Birmingham Rotary Club, Birmingham Youth Assistance, Bloomfield Hills Schools Foundation, Oakland County Children’s Village Foundation, The Bottomless Toy Chest, The Julian Boivin Courage for Cures Foundation, The Pink Fund, Village Players and Sky Foundation.
