Late in the summer, we plan an annual yard sale. This is a fun time where neighbors and friends can band together in fellowship and share a story or to, as well as a couple of treasures. All of the proceeds we raise go directly to our organization.
Cow Pie Bingo
Our Fall event is Cow Pie Bingo. This event is hosted at our facility, and usually takes place the third Tuesday of every October.. Tickets for the bingo event are $100 for 5 tickets or $25 per ticket. This is a family event with games and arts and crafts for kids, with hamburgers and hotdogs available to eat. The winner of Cow Pie Bingo wins a $500 gift card to Byron Center Meats. Additional raffles also take place.
The Christmas store occurs the first week of every December at Grace Reformed Church, located on Burlingame Ave. The store is open for local families in need to shop for Christmas gifts at discounted prices. Gift wrapping is provided by our volunteers on site. To qualify, an individual must have a child age 15 or younger and have visited Family Network’s food pantry at least three times in the past 12 months. Shopping times will be assigned for each individual. Please call 616-885-9919 for further details or questions. Registration begins early October and ends the first week of November.
In addition, in partner with Grace Reformed Church we host a different Christmas Store at Helen Devos Children’s Hospital, where any leftover gifts are available for sick children to shop for their families.
Our first fund raiser for the year is the Spring Gala. The last Tuesday in April, we hold our annual fundraising gala dinner at a local Grand Rapids area venue. The gala is our biggest and most exciting event of the year. This event is the kick-off for our new year of giving, where we celebrate our victories and share our vision for what’s next. There is also a silent auction. All of the proceeds go toward our organization.
