On Tuesday, March 12th we were able to photograph and participate in the 8th annual Hockey, Hops, and Hopes event that the Michigan Easterseals puts on every year. This year it was held at the Fox Hyundai dealership on 28th Street in Grand Rapids. During this event, the Grand Rapids Griffins players drop their gloves for the evening to entertain and host guests by serving different types of Michigan wines, beer, and ciders to the people of Grand Rapids and surrounding cities. It was a night of fun, eating, and drinks for all who were involved. They had different silent auction items, food was provided by YoChef & The Melting Pot, and drinks were provided by different beverage providers throughout the state. There were over 100 varieties of drinks available for tasting!
Overall, the event brought in just over $40,000 to support the Easterseals of Michigan. The Easterseals provide programs and service right here in West Michigan. Programs like Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy for kids, Children’s Trauma Services, summer camps, and respite. As well as some healthy aging programs for older adults. It was a wonderful event and we were proud to be a sponsor along with the other sponsors of Flagstar Bank, Amway, Imperial Beverage, Art of the Table, and Fox Motors.
We look forward to seeing how this event will grow over the upcoming years! To view more images from the event, follow this link: https://brickstreetstudio.pixieset.com/hockeyhopsandhopes/
