GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Wild music on stage and wild animals at the zoo - that's part of what's West this weekend. Mark Wood of Trans Siberian Orchestra fame leads students at East Kentwood Middle and High School through a couple of rocking concerts and Binder Park Zoo opens for the season. Last year, a facebook campaign was a huge success and now it's coming again. Walmart picked the 200 U.S. cities with the highest unemployment and asked Facebook users to vote on which would receive grants to fight hunger. The first-place city will receive $1 million, and the top 20 after that will each receive $50,000. The Walmart Foundation will then select which charities in the winning cities will receive money. Kids' Food Basket, Access of West Michigan, and Feeding America West Michigan are all potential recipients.
