Hall of Fame resized for web

The Macomb Hall of Fame honors individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to improving the economic, family, and community life of Macomb County. The event, generally held in September, includes a grand reception, dinner and entertainment.

Proceeds aid the Macomb Foundation – a 501(c)3 organization – in providing education and support programs for the local community.

Macomb County has warmly embraced the Macomb Hall of Fame since its inception in 2000.  This has resulted in phenomenal attendance, terrific media coverage and an opportunity to recognize individuals who have positively impacted Macomb County.
