Let’s Eat, Drink & Be Charitable for the Van Andel Institute! $922 Raised!!!
Please join the Social Charity Club in supporting The Van Andel Institute Thursday, September 13th at Tavern on the Square!
The Grand Rapids Social Charity Club is a grassroots organization founded in May, 2011. We focus on benefiting our local non-profit community through the coordination of fun, simple, monthly events. The Social Charity Club gathers the 2nd Thursday of every month at a different local venue. Each month we support & strive to bring additional exposure to a different local charity. Though we call ourselves a club, that term is used loosely; there is no registration required, simply come to the event, bring a friend (or two!) & enjoy the friendly, fun environment that Social Charity Club always provides!
What’s the deal?
Come to the event anytime between the hours 5:30PM & 9:00PM. The featured charity will be at the door to answer any questions & provide you with information on their organization. The cover is $10.00 & 100% of your donation goes directly to the charity! You will receive a complimentary drink ticket to use any time during the event & will enjoy complimentary appetizers from 5:30PM-6:30PM. At the end of the event we post the total raised via our Facebook & Twitter, so be sure to stay connected with us!
So why don’t you, step up while stepping out? Whether you are going out for a happy hour with co-workers, catching up with friends, networking, or interested in meeting new people, our events always provide participants with lots of laughs & the satisfaction that they are actively supporting the non-profit community at the same time.
Please join us on Thursday, September 13th at Tavern on The Square to benefit The Van Andel Institute. Founded by Jay & Betty Van Andel, Van Andel Institute’s goal is to have an impact world-wide on medical science & education.
