Previously known as the United Macedonian Churches of Detroit, the United Macedonian-Americans of Detroit are: “Macedonian Americans with the objective of (i) uniting the Macedonian community, especially our youth; (ii) building, promoting and preserving the Macedonian culture and heritage; and (iii) creating programs focused on humanitarian, educational, cultural, and social events for the benefit of the Macedonian people.”

The event will be attended by George Atanasovski, Meto Koloski, Mike Simoff, and Jason Miko, all of whom will be honored for their contributions to the Macedonian community. The UMAD organization also plans to award a total of $4,000 to students selected to receive the inaugural United Macedonian-Americans of Detroit Scholarship during the evening.
