Café Stella Chef Tommy FitzGerald dropped by 98.7 WFGR Classic Hits on Thursday morning to talk about the Comic-Con Juice Ball happening at the JW Marriott Grand Rapids on Saturday night.

Tommy is a fascinating guy who makes a difference in so many ways in Grand Rapids. While his work with Kids' Food Basket and his non-profit Kitchen Sage are enough, he brings his passion for life to everything he does, including throwing a party.

The Juice Ball, in its fifth year, is without a doubt the party of the year. Its proceeds go to a multitude of causes, including Kitchen Sage , the Juice Ball Initiative and Kids' Food Basket.

Tickets are $40 at the door or $30 in advance. The event starts at 7 p.m. at the JW Marriott Grand Rapids,235 Louis Campau Drive NW.
