Playing it Forward

Each and every year at least 10% of our profits are used to help heal the world.

Since our family owed business was established in 1970, it has been important for us at Freshwater Events, LLC, to “Play it Forward.”

Each year, undeterred by pandemic or inflation, since our founding, a minimum of ten percent (10%) of our profits are used to help heal the world. Our donations are given either directly in services or indirectly via cash donations.

We believe in building and maintaining strong, healthy, resilient communities

We Shoot Video

Before Freshwater Events LLC was born, our management team was already involved in shooting film and video for our nationwide  advertising/communication agency Utopian Empire Creativeworks and Photo Communication Services, Inc., serving regional and Fortune 500 corporations with their visual communication needs, as well as providing "B-Roll" for ABC Television Networks and feature films seen at the cinema.

Since returning home to NW Michigan in 1989, we have been growing and evolving in order to meet the wishes and needs of our clients.
