The 2018 event will again be held at the Eldean Boat Shed, 2223 South Shore Drive.
Special thanks to the Eldean Family and the Eldean Shipyard for generously donating the venue and being willing to host us!
Join us for A Growing Promise at the Eldean Boat Shed! Celebrate our community's generosity while enjoying an evening of grazing featuring cuisine from the area's finest restaurants and live music!
The social hour with appetizers and cocktails will begin at 5:30pm. Dinner will be available at 6:00pm with program to follow at 7:30pm.
We strongly encourage guests to arrive as close to 5:30pm as possible to maximize time to connect with other attendees prior to the grazing-style dinner and the program.

How does this grazing event work?
Many of the area's finest restaurants will provide a variety of small plate entrées and desserts following a lively cocktail hour and appetizers.
Note: If you miss the appetizer hour, you may not get to sample some of the restaurant creations as they will likely not still be available during dinner!
What if I have special dietary restrictions?
We work with the restaurants to ensure that there are multiple options available for those that are vegetarian, vegan, and/or gluten-free. These items will be indicated on the event menus along with the menu item descriptions. Additional questions can be directed to Lina at email@example.com or 616-994-8854. The restaurant staff present at each station will also be happy to answer any questions throughout the evening.
