Local First invites everyone in our West Michigan community to our 15th Birthday Party. This fundraising event will celebrate our members, our achievements, and everything we've done together to put local first. We'll have entertainment, heavy hors d'oeuvres, and a few more surprises up our sleeve. Attire is dressy casual.

DRINKS open bar ~ Founders beer on tap
FOOD strolling dinner ~ Build-Your-Own Sandwiches
GIFTS for you! Swag Bags ~ made by Public Thread
TREATS Connie's Cakes, Mexicana Bakery, Rise Authentic Baking Co.

Gluten Free Friends Please note that, due to parameters of the venue, there will be no gluten-free alcoholic beverage options. We hope will enjoy the special desserts we'll have for you and apologize for any hindrance this causes.


A panel of contestants will test their Local First knowledge in a multiple-question trivia game. Each contestant will be playing for an event attendee who has been selected at random. The contestant with the most points at the end of the game will win the prize for their attendee. To be entered, buy your tickets before July 20 and select the "Early Bird" ticket option.

The prize: Grand Rapids Mayor Rosalynn Bliss will record the winner's outgoing voicemail message!

Grab your friends and a few props to capture the funniest event memories.
