On Thursday, June 5, The Porter Hills Foundation will hold their annual Where in the World event at Frederik Meijer Gardens.  This year, those in attendance will be transported to The Wild Wild West.

The Wild Wild West journey is presented by Buiten & Associates Insurance and will include a reception, dinner and entertainment.  Performances will showcase the talents of Kelly Carey, Tim Cusack, Brian Lauer, Jeremiah Postma and the Girls Choral Academy with music direction by Wright McCargar.  Attendees are encouraged to wear festive western attire but to leave their guns (yes, even toy guns) at home.

The Porter Hills Foundation invites you to join the wagon train at 6pm for a pre-dinner reception as we begin our venture to The Wild Wild West.  Dinner and entertainment will commence at 7pm.  Individual tickets cost $150 ($85 per ticket is tax deductible) and can be purchased by calling 616-949-4975 EXT. 20434.

All proceeds benefit the Benevolence Fund.
