Roast of Bill Digneit Raised $5,400.00 Last Thursday

December 8, 2017

Marquette, Michigan – Photo of the Roast of Bill Digneit last Thursday.

The organization successfully raised over $5,400. The highlight of the night was a surprise performance by NMU Theatre. Local thespians did a rendition of ‘Hamilton’ with alternative lyrics, making fun of Bill’s raise to Marquette stardom. “In Marquette you can be a new man.”

Bill was adequately grilled, and embarrassed the whole time by friends, and prominent local people supporting the Beacon House cause. It was perfect.
