Let’s put the ‘Fun’ in
September 26, 2020 | Noon to 6 p.m. | Free will donation
Our continued sincere thanks to both businesses for their tremendous support!
Check out this PHOTO ALBUM from the 2019 event!
This event started as a simple truck show in 2016 as a way for Grant Me Hope to launch our “Going National” campaign. This campaign is ongoing and is successful because of the more than 20 West Michigan trucking companies that agreed to partner with us. They take our mission national on the backs of their trucks with our educational decals. These 2′ x 2′ stickers carry messages about the need for foster and adoptive homes on thousands of miles of our nation’s highways. We know these stickers are working. We’ve received phone calls from other states and photos from people who have seen them on the roads. We currently have 850 decals on trucks that are moving around the 48 contiguous states. Staying true to our roots, we’ll invite all these trucking companies out to show off their best trucks, complete with a Grant Me Hope decal. Most of the companies offer treats and free giveaways.

Nelis’ Dutch Village has been with us since our very first year! Rides, games, shops, exhibits, history and so much more!
Our fundraiser would never have been the success it has been over the past four years without this incredible business hosting us and our guests for the day! Our guests are free to enjoy all the rides and exhibits that are open.
This year, please follow the protocol laid out by staff and be respectful toward other guests and staff by practicing social distancing and wearing a mask where necessary. Thank you so much!
Custom Car/Motorcycle show
What a cool addition to our annual fundraiser this has been!
This is the third year for our car and motorcycle show. Long-time supporter Randall Darling does a great job for us running the custom car and motorcycle show for the Family FunFest. We’re grateful for his leadership & philanthropic spirit!
We can’t pull it off without you and your custom rides though! We love that you’ve put so much work into your cars and motorcycles and people of all ages love to come check them out! Plan to arrive at 11 a.m. for registration.
Registration to show a car or motorcycle is $20 the day of the event. Awards will be announced between 5 and 6 p.m.
A day like this wouldn’t be complete without a full stomach! We’ll be grilling up burgers and hot dogs and offering yummy extras. Find the picnic lunch inside Nelis’ Dutch Village.
Sponsors allow us to keep this event open to the public for a free will donation instead of charging admission. This is important, as we invite foster children living in group homes to this event. We cannot expect them to pay admission.
Please email Development Director Lynn Yntema at Lynn@grantmehope.org to find out how YOU can support our mission of finding forever homes for foster kids! (So many, many ways!)
