Name: Art Sweetheart Luncheon Honoring Junia Doan
Date: May 10, 2019
Time: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM EDT
Each year, Creative 360 honors a Great Lakes Bay Region arts advocate who has made significant contributions through exceptional vision, leadership and commitment to the arts. This year we choose Junia Doan for her passion for life and active compassion for people. Since coming to Midland from New York, Junia has continually been in the forefront of helping others. She was instrumental in raising significant funding for both the University Of Michigan School Of Medicine and the United Way of Midland County, and has served on the boards of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy; The Population Reference Bureau, Washington D.C.; The Detroit Institute of Arts and the Michigan Council for the Humanities. In 2002, Junia launched a TV show called Uncommon Sense with Junia to inspire, inform, entertain, educate and give courage to those who ask the big and small questions of life. Her current show, The Spark, offers a storytelling platform that aims to shape her audience’s philosophy of life by sharing stories of living with energy, gratitude, passion and excitement.Junia’s hope is that we all, together, become a more positive force to the people we meet. Junia joins our honor roll of Sweethearts that includes Dorothy Yates, Ginny Morrison, Barbara Prince-Sovereen, Sally Moss, Judy Rapanos, Nancy Barker, Janet I. Martineau, Ruby Iwamasa, Patty Shaheen, Dick & Donna Dolinski, Ruth & Etcyl Blair, Eugene Yehle, Alice Ralston, Gerry Hath and Paula Ulmer. This luncheon is catered by NADA.
