If you ever wanted to tour Grand Rapids while simultaneously helping to free the world from cancer, you're in luck.
Mary Manier, Director of Sales at Experience Grand Rapids (EXGR), is a breast cancer survivor and group tour industry professional—who decided to bring her two worlds together by collaborating with Gail Andrus Travel to create an annual group tour benefiting the American Cancer Society (ACS).
The tour, called Journey of Hope, is offering two packed days of Grand Rapids exploration this year, September 22 and 23, 2017.
Itinerary highlights include a reception featuring delectable crepes by ACS Chef Mick Von Doxtater, a tour of Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park and its upcoming Auguste Rodin exhibit, and downtown exploration of Grand Rapids' annual ArtPrize.
The tour costs $199 per person, double occupancy, and $269 per person, single occupancy. In addition to a silent auction benefiting ACS and other donation opportunities, $48 of the tour cost per person will support ACS.
To register for the Journey of Hope tour, fill out the online form at www.gailandrus.com.
