At their annual meeting on July 12, members of Midland Inspires, a local women’s philanthropy, voted to select Family Promise of Midland as the recipient of their first $100,000 grant.
Excitement mounted at the meeting as ballots were counted and recounted — the initial vote was a tie between Family Promise and the Midland Rape Crisis and Children’s Advocacy Center, according to reports. Finally, the tie was broken by a single vote. Family Promise was elected to receive Midland Inspires’ $100,000 grant and two-year partnership.

A check presentation was held Monday at Family Promise of Midland, 2908 W. Ohio Ave.
Brenda Harrison, president of Midland Inspires, said, “The closeness of the vote reflected the excellence of both finalists. Either would have been an excellent choice, and our members clearly struggled to decide between two outstanding proposals.”
