Ron Delano Fellowship Award
Since 2004, the MIC Committee has awarded a deserving person the Ron Delano Fellowship Award. Those who knew Ronnie can attest to the beautiful person that he was. He was always the first to volunteer to help out, he was a generous man with limitless energy - whether performing in shows or raising funds for charity. But most people remember his incredible sense of humor.
Do you know someone who has demonstrated commitment to the LGBTQ community? Someone who fights for equality? Someone who helps those in the community less fortunate? If so, we want to know.

Spirit of MIC Award
Each year the committee and volunteers work tirelessly to make the Motown Invitational Classic Tournament run smoothly and provide the fun and enjoyable weekend that attendees have come to expect. The Spirit of MIC Award is designed to honor those who have contributed their time, their talents, and their hard-work to make MIC what it is today. It also honors the spirit of those that came before us, and are no longer with us. The first name that comes to mind is Randy Albright, also known as "Papa" to many. He was instrumental in forming MIC. It was his, and others, foresight and determination to find a way to allow members of the LGBTQ Community to have a safe place to compete as well as meet and have fellowship once a year in the Motor City that created MIC back in 1985. We honor them by remembering their hard work as we present this Spirit of MIC to someone who has dedicated themselves to preserve their vision and make it a reality each and every year.
