Community Events

Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids depends 100% on charitable contributions to maintain our program, and Community Events hosted by individuals and organizations play a vital role in supporting our mission.

Each year, our friends in the community host golf outings, zumbathons, chili cook-offs, football games, motorcycle rides, spa days, jeans days, percent of sale give backs, and even incorporate Gilda’s Club into their weddings or birthdays by requesting donations instead of gifts. The creative list of unique and fun ideas goes on and on
