Please join us for Allen Neighborhood Center’s Annual Big Fuss Fest & Fundraiser! Our drop-in event will include hors d’oeuvres made in our kitchen from locally sourced ingredients, live jazz provided by Matt LoRusso and Sam Copperman, and a cash bar featuring Sleepwalker Spirits and Ale.
We have lots to celebrate this year, including: innovations in all of our program areas, the relocation of our main service area so that it now connects to Allen Market Place, and a new neighbor – HappenDance. (Tours of the new space will be provided!) It’s been an exhilarating and busy year, and we couldn’t have done it without your help!
We welcome your donation in any amount; it all goes directly to creating community. Your support will strengthen our efforts to promote neighborhood revitalization and to catalyze food, entrepreneurial and health-related initiatives that enrich people’s lives throughout Lansing’s Eastside, and, indeed, mid-Michigan.
