Party For Plants Feb 25th

Posted by ppna on February 9, 2010

It may still be winter in Michigan, but many of us are already making plans for summer fun! Join us on Thursday, February 25th at Frenchie’s from 8-11PM as we wile away the winter hours with some great music, food, drinks and friends all to benefit what is fast becoming one of Ypsilanti’s very own Rites of Spring: The Luna Lake Hoedown! This year’s event will feature live performances by local bands, including Black Jake and the Carnies and Hullabaloo, as well as YMCA sponsored activities for kids of all ages, native plants educational programs and a community potluck and BBQ. With 20% of your food and beverage purchases benefiting the Luna Lake Fund, the Frenchie’s Fundraiser will help ensure that this year’s Hoedown is a huge success and that Luna Lake continues to blossom and grow as a neighborhood gem. Can’t make it to the Fundraiser? That’s OK! Just drop by Sidetrack or Frenchie’s anytime on the 25th, and present the attached coupon to donate 20% of your purchase to Luna Lake. Feel free to print or copy as many coupons as you like, pass them around to friends and spread the word. The more, the merrier!

Please see the attached flier for more details. Thank you for your continued support of the Luna Lake Native Plants Garden! We look forward to seeing you on the 25th!
