IMA Community Salute to Honor C.S. Mott Foundation

The C.S. Mott Foundation will be honored with an award from the IMA Recreation Association for their significant contributions to the Genesee County community at the 16th annual IMA Community Salute.  The Salute will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 3 at IMA Brookwood Golf & Banquet Center in Burton.  A 5:30 p.m. reception will be followed by a 6:30 p.m. program where the C.S. Mott Foundation will accept the award and deliver remarks.  Isiah Oliver, President and CEO of the Community Foundation of Greater Flint will emcee the event.

“The IMA and Charles Stewart Mott have a long tradition dating back the early 1900s,” said Scott Jenkins, President of the IMA Recreation Association.  “In 1915, Charles Stewart Mott, a GM vice president, appointed an industrial committee that called itself the Industrial Fellowship League.  Many recreational and educational activities were offered to the workers through the IFL which later became the Industrial Mutual Association (now known as the IMA Recreation Association).”

The IMA has created a great tradition of honoring local influential community members through the annual Community Salute.  Past honorees include Cal Rapson, Joe Spielman, Guy Briggs, Dr. James E. A. John, former Lt. Governor John D. Cherry, former Congressman Dale E. Kildee, John Matonich, Dr. Thomas Svitkovich, University of Michigan Regent Libby

Maynard, former Mott Community College President Dr. Dick Shaink, Dr. Samuel Dismond, local businessman Phil Shaltz, Drs. Bobby Mukkamala and Nita Kulkarni, Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha and Dr. Lawrence Reynolds, and Congressman Dan Kildee.   The tradition continues in October 2018 by honoring the C.S. Mott Foundation at the 16th annual IMA Community Salute.

All proceeds from the Salute will benefit The First Tee of Eastern Michigan, a program of the IMA Recreation Association whose mission is to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values & promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
