Mark your calendars for September 15th and join us for our seventh annual “Something’s Grilling Gala” to benefit our Kent County parks!
This casual event recognizes the work of community leaders to help preserve Kent County’s natural areas and provide outdoor recreation spaces. The event is held at Millennium Park every other year, and half of the proceeds go directly to this park to continue expanding and enhancing this beautiful gem! Did you know that Millennium Park is one of our nation’s largest urban parks, and is almost twice the size of Central Park in New York City!?
Honorary event co-chairs, Peter Secchia and John Canepa, will host this year’s “grilling” of Dick & Betsy DeVos, Dan & Pamella DeVos, Cheri DeVos, and Doug & Maria DeVos for their integral role in the development of Millennium Park.
Since 2004, Something’s Grilling has raised over $900,000 in support of our county parks and trails—and this year we want to invite you to be part of it! Tickets are on sale now, and there are still opportunities to become a sponsor and show your support! Save your seat as soon as possible—space is limited and we will sell out!
This year we will be celebrating the grand opening of “The Meadow,” the latest development at Millennium Park, thanks to the generosity of Peter Secchia! Something’s Grilling is the perfect event to showcase the new pavilion, boardwalk, and natural beauty that makes The Meadow a grand addition to the park. The Meadow is located directly across from the main entrance to the park off of Maynard Ave.
Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres begin at 6pm with dinner following at 7pm, and the program beginning at 8pm.
Something's Grilling would not be a success without our many volunteers who have helped over the years. We would love to have your help. Sign up HERE.
