The Katty Shack pasta dinner and 5K run have raised more than $100,000 for the Michigan Crime Victim Foundation since the events started 10 years ago.

Recently, organizers presented a $9,000 check from this year’s events, held April 26-27, to Cheryl VanRegenmorter, wife of the late state Sen. William VanRegenmorter, and John Lazet, president of the Michigan Crime Victim Foundation.
