Fowl Play Dinner 2014 Exceeds Expectations

“Birds of a feather flock together”. We sure proved that to be true at our first annual Fowl Play Dinner held on October 28, 2014. Chix and Dux supporters of Zeeland Public Schools gathered together to support the Zeeland Education Foundation. Through the proceeds from our sponsors and a raffle of local business items, we raised just over $35,000!

It was a great evening at the Yacht Basin Conference Center starting with family-style dinner provided by Beechwood Inn. Our guests learned about the important work of the Foundation by hearing from the Foundation visionary, Gary Feenstra and by watching our video which can now be seen on our website ( We ended the evening with an entertaining and motivational speech from John U. Bacon, author and University of Michigan professor.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors and businesses for helping to make our first Fowl Play Dinner a soaring success!
