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!

Tribute on the Grand is back for 2017!!

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.

Aren’t rapids usually loud? I mean if we’re going from thisto this. The whole vibe of downtown might change a bit. Right?

Maybe it would make it cooler. I dunno.
