100th Birthday Bash Details
In 2017, MIFA turns 100 years old! And we want you to help us celebrate with the best little birthday party of the year.
MIFA’s 100th Birthday Bash is scheduled for 6-10p. Friday, July 28, 2017 at the Crowne Plaza Lansing West. Join us for this once-in-a-lifetime event. A fantastic opportunity to reconnect, relish in the history of MIFA events and share the love for speech activities. This adult reception is suited for coaches past and present, former competitors, judges and supportive spouses & parents. There will be dinner, a cash bar, silent auction, a couple of well timed speeches by notable characters, a little music and dancing. Oh, and cake!
We’ve even reserved a block of hotel rooms should you wish to stay the night in Lansing. Reservations can be made directly with the Crowne Plaza Lansing West (517) 323-7100.
The success of the 100th Birthday Bash depends greatly on our sponsors and volunteers but it's your attendance the will help make sure we're here for the next 100 years! Please purchase a ticket or table in support of Michigan speech activities.
