Grand Rapids Festival Of The Arts Fundraiser Is October 25

Facebook

The weather at Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts was bad this year.

The bad weather led to poor turnout and less money for the festival.

Thursday night, October 25, Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts will hold a fundraiser to help make up for this year’s losses.

Thursday night’s fundraiser starts at 7:00pm at Grand Rapids Ballet Company’s Wege Theatre.  Tickets are $35 at the door.

Local musician Drew Nelson will perform.  Food and drink will be provided by Tommy Fitzgerald.

Enjoying good food and music is the perfect way to raise money for an event that celebrates the same in Grand Rapids.
