GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A fundraiser benefitting a Holland Hospital health center is back in-person for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic.

The Culinary Cabaret will take place on March 2 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville. It will benefit the Holland Community Health Center, which is the primary care office of over 5,900 patients who are uninsured or under insured, according to Holland Hospital.

The center offers specialized services like behavior health, obstetrics and wellness visits for men, women and children. It also offers transportation and social services to patients who need it, the hospital said.

The Culinary Cabaret features food and drinks from local lakeshore restaurants like Big Lake Brewing, Boatwerks Waterfront Restaurant, Butch’s Dry Dock and Fenn Valley Vineyards and Wine Cellars, among others.

“It revolves around about nine restaurants serving appetizer-sized cuisine. It’s a grazing fest. And in between every restaurant station is raffle items. Twelve-bids you have a chance to win … It’s a great time. We have live auctions, we have wine raffles, we have mystery gift cards … we have a live band there, it’s just a really fun time and we’re so excited to be together again in person,” said Colleen Perdok, fund development coordinator for Holland Hospital.

Last year’s event was virtual and raised $124,000 for the center.

“Our Holland Community Health Center is a primary care practice located right in the heart of Holland, within walking distance for several families to be able to get there … they find it a safe and welcoming environment to be able to walk to safely, easily and have their primary healthcare needs taken care of,” said Michelle Doctor, vice president of Holland Hospital Medical Groups. “It helps them to take care of chronic illnesses, take care of other natural primary health issues and keeping them out of the emergency room.”

Tickets are $100 each if purchased before February 17. After that, they will be $125 leading up to the event and at the door. Guests must be 21 or older.
