A Love for Antiques Brings Support for Charity:
Members of the Rotary East club in SE Grand Rapids are excited about this year’s new approach to how they give. With 100% of pre-sale proceeds going to CASA of Kent County and D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s, the patrons know they are giving directly to a cause. Plus, every pre-sale ticket comes with a $10 credit voucher to Curtis Cleaners.
Show manager, Cecily Near, is an adoptive parent through D.A. Blodgett and feels it gives her more drive to create a successful event. “I can’t tell you what a pleasure it is to be working on this project knowing DA Blodgett – St. John’s will be one of the recipients” states Cecily.
“Shortly after my husband and I were married”, explains Cecily, “our neighbor girl asked us when we were going to “get kids”. For many years we laughed about her sweet inquiry because it seemed she thought people didn’t “have kids”, instead they simply went to a store and picked one up. Little did we know, “having kids” would not be our family’s first option, but we would instead “get kids” by lovingly picking them up at DA Blodgett for Children”.
Get into the spirit of the vintage scene:
On Friday, free admission is offered to anyone who comes to the show dressed in full vintage attire. Flapper girls, poodle skirts, and zoot suits welcome. The normal general admission fee is $10 per person, while kids 17 years of age and younger are free. Parking is also provided for free. The Rotary Antique Show is projected to have nearly fifty vendors this year, bringing thousands of vintage and antique items for sale.
Antique appraisals will be offered by Michigan State Auctioneers Association for $5 per item on Friday evening 5pm-9pm. Bring your treasured items to discover their value.
