    We are very excited about hosting An Evening for the Great Lakes to benefit FLOW.  Born from a desire to collaborate for good, this event lineup is sure to deliver a spectacular evening.

    The fundraising event An Evening for the Great Lakes to benefit FLOW will take place at our award winning historic event venue, Cherry Basket Farm, on Tuesday, July 18th 2017.

    To begin the evening, a delicious farm to table meal by Epicure Catering will be served along side locally produced wine from Baia Estate Leelanau and craft beer from Traverse City’s The Workshop Brewing Company.

    Readings by local water lovers author Mike Delp and celebrity chef Mario Batali will also be featured.

    To round out the evening, Grammy Winner Blake Mills will play a set in the barn. Some special guests may even sit in…

    In an effort to keep the evening intimate, only a small number of tickets will be available. We do hope you will join us for this unforgettable evening in support of a worthy cause. Tickets are available through MyNorthTickets, and will be available for purchase on June 9th.

    Here is a snippet about FLOW’s Mission:

    Our mission at FLOW is to protect the common waters of the Great Lakes Basin through public trust solutions. As the Great Lakes Basin’s only public trust policy and education center, we demonstrate how policies like the public trust and commons can provide an overarching policy framework that empowers decision-makers to safeguard 20 percent of the world’s fresh water.


    A huge thank you to Jeremy Turner, who initiated the collaborative effort to bring this event to life, and to graphic designer Jim Schuessler, who created all the artwork for the event.
