#RAOK724 – PAYING IT FORWARD TO KIDS’ FOOD BASKET OF WEST MICHIGAN

 

Join me. Friday, 7/24/15 – I am hosting the largest Charity Event of the weekend in West Michigan alongside my good friend, Jordan Carson​ of NBC​ WOOD TV8​’s eightWest​ – Supporting Kids’ Food Basket​ (KFB). From 8pm-2am at Peppino’s Downtown Sports Lounge​.

EVENT: #RAOK724 – PAYING IT FORWARD TO KIDS’ FOOD BASKET

WHY IMPORTANT: In Greater Grand Rapids, 1 in 4 West Michigan children are negatively impacted by hunger. For more than a decade, through hundreds of volunteers & charitable funds raised, KFB feeds +7,000 undernourished children daily across 36 schools in Kent County, Michigan​.

 

 

EVENT DETAILS: Event will be located at the #1 Sports Bar & Lounge in Grand Rapids, Michigan – Peppino’s Downtown on Ionia​. Charitable Packages will be raffled, donations will be accepted throughout the evening & I will auction a brand new stainless steel grill & 5-Star A Bachelor & His Grill​ cooking experience to one lucky individual (& their 9 closest friends).

And, Peppino’s Leadership Team has graciously offered to DONATE 15% OF GROSS RECEIPTS DIRECTLY TO KFB!

WHY YOU SHOULD BE THERE: You have capacity to make a difference. You will be downtown anyway. I will most likely buy you a beer.

IF YOU CANNOT BE THERE: Please consider donating directly to Kids’ Food Basket & ensure to note #RAOK724 – CLICK HERE TO SUPPORT!

GOAL: My hope is to raise awareness & $25,000 to assist KFB in striking out hunger amongst the children of West Michigan. One small individual donation at a time. One collective effort. We can make this happen. We can be the change.

CALL TO ACTION: Join me on 7/24. Drink beer in the name of fighting hunger. Help me celebrate my Birthday. Pay it forward to our community.
