Join us for the 2012 LINC Community Spirit Awards

Posted: 03-02-2012

The date is Thursday, March 29, 2012. The location is the Goei Center in downtown Grand Rapids.  And the purpose is simple: bestow the Community Spirit Awards on community members who have tirelessly devoted their time, energy and skills to revitalizing their neighborhoods.   This honor is the spirit of what LINC is all about.

Over 300 attendees joined the awards celebration last year.  Nine incredible organizations and individuals were recognized for their tireless work then.   Their contributions just like those who support LINC and its mission are vital to our success as we continue to grow.  Growth that signifies we are doing more in our community.    

LINC believes in the inherent human potential of every person. We also realize that there are many barriers and social structures in place acting as blinders to the potential and ability within communities. Given this understanding, we believe it is imperative to connect community members to opportunities which restore hope and provide the space for them to become all they were intended for.

LINC is about community revitalization and making good things happen.  We want you to be a part of our story. So come and dine with us. See real stories of our community working together for a better future and honor individuals and organizations at the forefront of this vital change!

Individual tickets or tables are on sale now!
