Vote for Friendship Circle as your Favorite Non-profit

Deadline Detroit and The Sam Bernstein Law Firm have come together to recognize some of Metro Detroit’s best non-profit organizations that go above and beyond to help our community. These awards honor Service, Action, and Meaning. So these have been appropriately named the “SAM Awards”! Friendship Circle is one of the 5 finalists up for this honor.

How to Vote

1. From March 3-30, people can cast their ballot for their favorite organization by going to the Sam Bernstein Facebook page and clicking “like.”

2. Click the icon that says “Deadline Detroit Bernstein Service Award.” (It’s on the same line as photos and “likes.”) Read the instructions and vote. The app lets you vote only once.

Each organization will get 25 cents per vote, up to $5,000. The one that gets the most votes will get an additional $500.

“We are absolutely blown away by the response to this contest,” said attorney Mark Bernstein.  It’s great to partner with Deadline Detroit and these exceptional organizations.”

The finalists, selected by the Sam Bernstein Law Firm and Deadline Detroit, are: Friendship Circle, Michigan Urban Farming Initiative, Camp Casey, Downriver Arts Council and Heart 2 Hart Detroit.
