I predict the Lansing Promise Scholarship dinner will become the toughest ticket in town in the coming years. The second annual event drew 1,300 to the Lansing Center Thursday night, featuring Earvin “Magic” Johnson who brought the musical group Earth, Wind and Fire to entertain.
When the likes of Kelly Dean, the Lansing Chamber of Commerce, Magic, Tom Izzo and a litany of big time community sponsors are involved you know the event will be classy and grow. Scholarship money for Lansing school students has now grown to more than $1 million in two years of operation helping some 500 needy students attend either Michigan State or Lansing Community College. As long as Earvin comes back every April and he can draw Izzo to be a part of the program — this will be a highly sought ticket.
