Auburn Hills, MI, March 30, 2011 – Genisys Credit Union recently received the 2010 Main Street Oakland County “Sponsor of the Year” award for the efforts they have made not only to the program, but to downtowns throughout Oakland County.

“Genisys Credit Union and Lon Bone in particular, have always gone far beyond the call of duty for the MSOC program,” said Bob Donohue, MSOC Program Coordinator/Principal Planner. “Thus, they were the unanimous choice as the ‘2010 MSOC Sponsor of the Year.’ We look forward to a continued successful relationship and fantastic partnership in the future.”

Genisys has assisted in supplying travel for educational/advocacy efforts by MSOC in Washington, D.C., made sponsorship dollars available for the annual MSOC “Main Event” awards night, and provided advocacy and education training for MSOC staff, Advisory Board members and MSOC community representatives. They have also coordinated opportunities for MSOC to participate in the Holiday Extravaganza Parade each year and facilitated a partnership between MSOC and Oakland University.

Lon Bone has taken it upon himself to personally arrange for MSOC representatives to meet with State Legislators in the State Capitol Building for an annual luncheon and has spoken with them on behalf of MSOC to educate and advocate for the specific needs of all Oakland County downtowns. He has also served as an Advisory Board Member and has participated on the Education and Outreach, Fundraising, and Establishment of a Scholarship Subcommittees.

“I’m honored to accept this award on behalf of Genisys,” said Bone. “It’s wonderful people like the MSOC members who are dedicated to making our downtown environments a great place to live, work and play.”
