Kate More stopped by to speak to us about the 7th Annual Jay & Betty Van Andel Legacy Awards Gala that will be held on Thursday, November 12, 2015.

They are inviting you to join them in supporting West Michigan’s finest at the 7th Annual Jay & Betty Van Andel Legacy Awards Gala. In celebration of the GRPM’s exhibition American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, this Bootleggers Ball will be set in the era of flappers, bootleggers, temperance lobbyists, and organized crime legends.

At the Legacy Awards Gala they honor outstanding leaders who have inspired others by their personal and professional investment in the Grand Rapids and West Michigan community past, present and future. By supporting this year’s Gala, you will be supporting the inspiring stories of leadership, as well as contributing to the GRPM, and helping to continue the vision Jay and Betty Van Andel had for the Museum – to be a vital cornerstone of the Grand Rapids community.
