Fundraiser planned for local drug court

GLADSTONE — The Kilborn Alley Blues Band will be making its way to the U.P. to play for a fundraiser at the Terrace Bay Hotel in Gladstone on Saturday, Nov. 18.

All profit from this event will benefit the Delta County Drug Court. The drug court was established in 2016 and is a specialized court that addresses defendants’ drug addictions rather than sentencing behind bars.

“Drug court in Delta County attacks the root of the problem — addiction,” said Delta County District Judge Steve Parks, explaining the 15 to 24 month program is not easy for the participants, which includes high-risk and high-need offenders.

The door opens at 7 p.m. with the concert beginning at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are available at Jim’s Music in Escanaba or at the door.
