Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation 30th Anniversary Kick-Off


The Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation (GRACF) is celebrating their 30th Anniversary in 2024 and is hosting a kick-off event on April’s First Friday Art Walk event April 5, 2024, from 4-7pm at the Community Foundation, 350 NW 1st Avenue, Suite E, Grand Rapids, Minnesota.  On display will be artwork from Michelle (Shelly) Linn of Itasca Creations.  Shelly retired to the Itasca County area and has discovered her artistic passion, experimenting with various media to express her creativity. There will be live music by the wonderful Ditty Wish from 4:30 – 6:30, and beverages and appetizers will be served.


Local nonprofits are encouraged to attend to learn more about GRACF’s 30th anniversary nonprofit partner opportunity.  Please stop in and talk with staff, enjoy good food, art, music, and company.  You will also have the opportunity to donate to the first annual Seeds of Change Fund which will benefit local nonprofits in the Greater Itasca Area.
