40 Years in the Making, It's the Birthday Party You Always Wanted


Use a highlighter, a sticker, a big red circle–whatever you do to keep track of important events–you’ll want to save the date of Saturday, April 20. 

The East Grand Rapids Schools Foundation’s fundraiser of the year, HURRAH!, will once again fill Wege Plaza overlooking Reeds Lake with food, fun, friends, music, drinks and more.

This community-wide event is always a highlight on the East Grand Rapids social calendar. Last year, HURRAH! was sold out weeks before the event so be sure you register as a sponsor or get your tickets to attend right away. Sponsorship opportunities are already being snapped up.

Approximately 400 people attended HURRAH! in April of 2023 and this year’s party is a special one. Throughout the school year, the Foundation, which was founded in 1983, has been celebrating 40 years of supporting our schools. This year’s HURRAH! will be a celebration of the Foundation’s birthday and its mission of enriching the experience of all students by investing in programs and educational enhancements that support the whole child.

It’s a party 40 years in the making. You won’t want to miss it!
