As the owner of Draska Investments, Michael Draska is able to help people in all communities with a wide range of financial products and services. His goal is to help take the mystery out of investing, help to manage risk and plan for retirement. He has 20 plus years of financial experience and is a registered FINRA Broker. But that is not the only reason Draska is our applauding alumni! From July 22 to July 24, there was a “Quake on the Lake”(http://www.quakeonthelake.org/), and Draska was at the heart of it all. As the Vice-Chair of Operations Management and Volunteers, Draska made sure that the event was seamless and exciting for all ages. As a Walsh College alumni and a former WCAA Board President, Michael invited alumni to join him on Pontiac Lake for a weekend of fun, food, and hydroplane racing.

According to the Quake on the Lake website:
“Since 1999, “Quake on the Lake” has gained a reputation as one of the premier summertime events in/around Oakland County, MI. The “Quake” has become a “must attend” event for North American Inboard Hydroplane owners and drivers with world-record racing performances from top teams in the business. The event is the proud recipient of 19 American Power Boat Association (APBA) world speed records being set in 5 different racing classes making Pontiac Lake one of the fastest one-mile race courses in the country!”

Michael provided the Walsh College alumni a place to gather, food, a visit to the pit, and two days of admission to the "Quake."  Invited alumni had an opportunity to watch some fascinating boat racing, eat some great food, visit the classic car show or the DIA exhibits, and enjoy wonderful music provided by 94.7 WCSX and Let There Be Rock, an AC/DC tribute band, plus play-by-play commentary from WWJ 950 radio.

Even though Quake on the Lake is a fun event for all ages, the purpose is to support Oakland County Community Club and its many charitable partners. Walsh College is proud to announce and celebrate Michael Draska as an applauding alumni! Many thanks to you and kudos on the work you do!
