Cherry Festival Make-N-Bake 2017
Every summer during the National Cherry Festival, Grand Traverse Pie Company educates the community about ending child sexual abuse through its popular Make-N-Bake event. Children and families learn about body safety while preparing delicious pies. Denise and Mike Busley lead a “We are Team Zero” chant to encourage everyone to visit the weareteamzero.org website for more information about keeping children safe. This year, the Grand Traverse Pie Company donated over $2,600 to the TBCAC through event contributions. Thanks to all who participated in the fun! We’re looking forward to seeing you again in 2018!
SwingShift & the Stars 2016
Christal Frost Anderson is an active member of our local community. She hosts a daily talk show on WTCM NewsTalk 580 and has been included in the Ticker’s 40Under40 list of the most influential young people in the area for three years in a row. This past fall, Christa took her advocacy one step further — literally — by volunteering to dance in SwingShift and the Stars to benefit the TBCAC. She strapped on her dancing shoes and grooved the cha-cha, swing, and salsa in front of packed audiences at the City Opera House from September through December. Christal’s dazzling performances and stunning heart raised $75,000 for the TBCAC and she received an award for the highest level of community support given to a charity at the event!
