Dora duPont Williams Fund

Back to Funds...

The Dora duPont Williams Fund For Music was established by her daughter, Susan Lenfestey, as a tribute to her mother Dora's love of music and Mackinac. Having first come to Mackinac during the 1930s to await her husband's completion of the Chicago to Mackinac Yacht race, Dora, and her husband Lynn, purchased a cottage on the East Bluff in 1972.

Dora enjoyed spending much of her Island time working to create a music festival on Mackinac bringing in many groups, including the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. The Dora duPont Williams Fund For Music aims to bring high quality live music to the Mackinac Island Public School and to the Mackinac Island community.
