Dockside Restaurant Raises Money For Grass River Natural Area

The Dockside Restaurant in Torch Lake celebrated their spring fling fundraiser Monday, raising money for the Grass River Natural Area.

Half of all food and drink proceeds went to GRNA programs, which include summer camps along with paddling and wildlife activities.

Grass River says they’ve held this event for more than 20 years, and even with limited capacity and extra take-out orders, they’re still impressed by the response from the community.

“We are just so thankful for all the folks that come out and help support us through programs, through events like this, the Dockside, the folks who are coming out and just putting money in the jar,” said Jenn Wright, Executive Director of Grass River Natural Area. “All of those funds are very, very appreciated and very well used.”

The GRNA says they typically raise about $2,500 dollars through their spring fling event.
