Plus, proceeds from this year's event will benefit the Village Arts Factory, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is based in Canton, MI that serves as a nexus for the arts, culture, music, and community engagement, as well as the Canton Cares Fund, which supports the Canton community by providing financial assistance to disaster relief, therapeutic recreation, youth and senior programs."

The tasty brats will be provided by Maraschinos Pub. Plus, musical entertainment will be performed throughout the evening by Standing Room Only.
