The Garden Party Northern Michigan 2017
Sun, August 13, 2017, 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT
The Garden Party Foundation (TGPF) was founded by Sydney L. Ross and his wife, Elizabeth. The Garden Party event was initiated, and is maintained, by the J. Lewis Cooper Family and Elizabeth and Sydney L. Ross Foundation.
For 9 years, TGPF has hosted an event, The Garden Party South East Michigan, comprised of fine wine, delicious food and classic cars with all proceeds benefiting charity. For the second year in a row, we are expanding to Northern Michigan and expecting nearly 300 guests attend, 20 restaurants display their signature dishes and 100 different wines are served.Guests are encouraged to enjoy a pleasant afternoon and of course, display their classic car.
The goal of The Garden Party event is to create a pleasant Sunday afternoon. Pleasing to the eye, the palate and for its charitable aspect – pleasing to the soul.
The mission of TGPF is to provide trade school and culinary school scholarships to underprivileged young adults. TGPF believes that the purpose of education is to teach students skills allowing them the opportunity to create their own self-sustainable life, which goes hand in hand with TGPF’s intention…to help one student at a time reach their dreams.
In 2017, proceeds from The Garden Party Northern Michigan will benefit North Central Michigan College's students through scholarships.
