On Fat Tuesday, there's more to look forward to than your yearly paczki. This year, you can also join us in supporting The Rapidian with a Night Out at Logan's Alley.

From 7 p.m. until close at 2 a.m. that night, 20% of all purchases will be given right back to supporting The Rapidian. 

In our fourth "Night Out for The Rapidian," the community is encouraged to join us in supporting The Rapidian by going out and supporting your local watering hole Logan's Alley at 916 Michigan Street SE

Rapidian staff will also be available in the earlier hours of the evening to take donations. Donors will receive Rapidian swag like reusable bags, reporter notebooks and t-shirts as a way of saying thank you for your donation-and a way for you to show off your Rapidian love! In fact, on that night we'll have all of our thank-you gifts at special reduced donation levels, so whether you're at the event or unable to attend, be sure to take advantage of the chance to show us some Rapidian love and supporting us by donating online

The Rapidian, a proud service of the Community Media Center, was started thanks to generous grants from the Knight Foundation and our local Grand Rapids Community Foundation.

Now that those grants are completed, we need your help to keep The Rapidian going. The Rapidian provides a platform for all voices in Grand Rapids, sharing local news, information and perspectives by empowering anyone in the community to become a citizen journalist.

Citizen journalists are provided with tools, training and individual mentors to help them along the way-and in return they provide us with all sorts of stories about what is going on in our community, engaging readers and letting them know of ways to get involved.

We're looking forward to seeing you all out and helping us keep community news available in the greater Grand Rapids area. Come on down and say "hi" -and don't forget to thank Logan's Alley for their generous support of our efforts!

Those planning to attend can RSVP here.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.

If each of our readers and content creators who values this community platform help support its creation and maintenance, The Rapidian can continue to educate and facilitate a conversation around issues for years to come.

Please support The Rapidian and make a contribution today.
