We love the 80’s – 2016 Juice Ball

As usual, Tommy Fitzgerald’s annual Juice Ball was a very fun event for everyone involved!  The themes for the event change every year and I must admit this years theme, The 80’s,  might’ve been one of my favorites!

Off the shoulder sweatshirts, Bright leggings, and many more funny fashions flooded the JW Marriott. The Juice Ball isn’t just for fun though, every year it raises money for Tommy’s organization, Kitchen Sage.  Kitchen Sage is a great program that provides all of these below!

• A Culinary Leadership Academy to build life skills for Grand Rapids youths, teaching budgeting, planning, teamwork, accountability, character development, resourcefulness, and leadership in a fun, food-centered atmosphere
• Resources for smart shopping, recipes and meal planning, nutrition, and the tools and techniques of the kitchen
• Opportunities for local businesses to partner and support each other
• Meaningful volunteer and mentoring roles for community members
• Career preparation skills, including ServSafe® Food Handler Certification

Big Lyle’s is always glad to be a part of such a giving organization and loves volunteering at this event to raise money for such a good cause!
