Sip and Support 2018

News & Events

Thanks for making Sip & Support such a success!

The band was fantastic. The kids from "Guys and Dolls" were terrific. The drinks and snacks hit the spot. But it was the people that made Sip and Support such a wonderful celebration of our community and our schools. 

The party, which took place Saturday night in the library and Community Center, drew hundreds of people who danced to the music of Troll for Trout and enjoyed a fun-filled night of catching up with friends and neighbors. 

"Our committee of volunteers did an outstanding job of creating a fabulous event," says East Grand Rapids Schools Foundation Executive Director Amy Stuursma, "but it's the people who came to the party who made it such a magical night. All night long I had people telling me this was a great venue for the new event. We ended up asking the band to play a little bit longer at the end of the night because people didn't want the party to be over."
