Founders Unveils their Tribute on the Grand 2016 Highlight Video
Founders threw a party to raise money to put the rapids back in Grand Rapids and it was a ton of fun, and, raised a lot of money!
We took over Ah-Nab-Awen Park in Downtown Grand Rapids for the first-ever Tribute on the Grand, a fundraiser for Grand Rapids Whitewater. Featuring live cover bands, beer and games for all-ages, this event raised over $200,000 for the cause.

Even though there was a threat of inclement weather 'Tribute on the Grand' ended up raising over $200,000!
That's a good chunk of change but that old river still needs some help. Who knew rocks were so expensive!
This time it'll be on Saturday August 19th -- same place as last time Ah-Nab-Awen Park.
Should be loads of fun.
What's not to love? Booze, food, and music! Oh and bringing the rapids back to downtown.
I wonder how loud the rapids will end up being when they're done.
Maybe it would make it cooler. I dunno.
