Last week, one of Visbeen Associates' clients was host to an awareness event for Hospice of Michigan.
In mid-September, Duff Goldman of The Food Network will be in Grand Rapids to help celebrate the 30th birthday of Hospice. Goldman will be holding a book signing at Schuler Books downtown on the 14th, with all proceeds going to Hospice of Michgan's Open Access Program. On the 15th, Goldman will be speaking at DeVos Performance Hall, as well as unveiling a cake he is preparing in celebration of the anniversary.
In order to spread the word about this upcoming opportunity, Hospice organized a "Cake Party" and invited supporters to come enjoy themselves while touring a beautiful home full of creative pastries. "Old Woods Manor" was the chosen venue for eight fabulous cakes made by local chefs. Each cake was designed to match a room of the house.
Also featured was a dessert-making and decorating demonstration by the head pastry chef from the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in downtown Grand Rapids. The chef and his assistant wowed spectators with chocolate-covered strawberries, cheese cake, tiramisu and an exquisite layer cake. It is the hope of organizers that each attendee will invite 100 people to the Duff Goldman event in a couple of weeks. For more information or to get involved, visit Hospice of Michigan's Events Page.
