Local Businessman Takes Generosity To a Whole New Level [VIDEO]

Michael Lajoice’s comments were met with a standing ovation, as he told attendees at the ‘Women, Wine, Fashion and Finance Fundraiser’ he’d match funds raised by the silent and live auctions at Thursday’s event. (See the video below) But LaJoice, who owns Chasse Ballroom and Latin Dance studio, said his decision to be so generous was spur of the moment.

“I didn’t plan on doing it, but it just felt right in the moment,” LaJoice told Cars 108. “They played a video just prior to my speech that was very moving about kids not eating.”

Organizers of the event set a lofty goal to raise $50,000 for the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan’s Backpack program. The program benefits children in Genesee County whose only meal(s) may come from school. Enough meals for a weekend are loaded into backpacks, so those kids can be fed and nourished on days when they are not in school. The exact amount of money raised will not be available until later this week.

According to Margie Shard of Shard Financial Services who hosts the annual event, a $100 donation can supply a child with an entire school year’s worth of weekend meals.
