This December 22, 2016 is the 17th annual WYCE Bubble Bash at the B.O.B. in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. Year after year the bubbly flows, the conversation resonates, and the hor d'oeuvres appetize. However, other factors may vary.  For example, the amount of snow, how quickly the bubbles run out, and which prizes you take home. WYCE, Denison Financial, and the Gilmore Collection present this annual holiday celebration featuring sparkling wines from around the world. Beginning at 5 p.m., with a donation of $25 you will sample 14 varieties of bubbles including a spread of food as accompaniment.

Longtime WYCE Programmer Mike Kennedy recounts: “The very first one I was able to learn about the different varieties of wines. I was able to taste while being trained. Tons of people there. And WYCE music to go along with it.”

Station Manger Quinn Mathews shares his thoughts on the legacy of Bubble Bash: “It’s so great to see the many different events that have been associated with WYCE over the years and still continue on! I’m so grateful to Gilmore Collection and especially Bill Koski for putting this benefit on for our radio station for the last 17 years. It’s incredible the dedication they have given to WYCE because they care about music, they care about entertainment, and most importantly they care about the community!”

Annually the event features prizes given off raffle ticket style in the spirit of giving. So bring your friends or clients to this ever so festive 21 & up event at the B.O.B. in downtown Grand Rapids. Cash or check to WYCE is payable at the door. Prepare your Christmas cheer while supporting volunteer powered radio in your West Michigan community.
