Eat Well and Raise Money for Great Cause

Flint Local 432 is a non-profit, all ages, substance free venue in Flint, Michigan that promotes music and the arts within the community. Last year they celebrated their 30th anniversary by hosting a food festival in the local farmers market to help raise funds for the space to continue its programming. The fundraiser was so successful that they decided to turn it into an annual event.

The Mixdown will take place at The Flint Farmers Market this Friday, October 7th. The event will feature a walk-around tasting, chef demonstrations, drinks and a display telling the history of the Flint Local 432. This year's culinary lineup includes chef Tim Archuleta from Ichi Sushi in San Fransisco, Charles Siegel from Charles Chocolates in San Fransisco, Sean Gartland from Flint Food Works, Hannah Kovalcheck, Vegan Chef from the Soggy Bottom in Flint, Danny Moilanen from Vehicle City Tacos in Flint, Keysa Smith from Spectacular Spudz in Flint, Tony Vu from MaMang in Flint, and Jonathan Short from Lafayette Grand CafĂ© and Bakery in New York City. The event will also feature offerings from Shorts Brewery and specialty cocktails from Ken Laatz of Soggy Bottom.
Tickets to attend this year's Mixdown are $30 a person and they can be purchased here. The Mixdown will run from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. this Friday. We're glad to see this become an annual event because raising money for The Flint Local is a great cause!
