Grove Cares is pleased to announce that on Saturday August 25, 2015 it will once again be hosting its annual Charity Fundraiser, FESTIDAN, at Peacock Park in Coconut Grove, Florida. The event benefits the ALS foundation which is a foundation founded to help fund scientific research to find a cure for the disease commonly known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”.
The event consists of performances by four (4) live musical acts on a sound stage. We are please to announce this year that DJ Ethics, Outereach, Day Music Died, and Problem Kids will be performing. Guests are encouraged to come to the event with all their tailgating needs as the event’s slogan is “This is Tailgating!”. The event will be held on August 25, 2012 from 2 o’clock p.m. until 10 o’clock p.m. with the last act scheduled to take the stage at 8. The event is open to members of the public 21 years of age and older. In exchange for a $30.00 donation at the door, or $25.00 prepaid at www.festidan.com, guests are provided with a wrist band giving them admission to the event and free beer all day provided by the event sponsors.
Being that the event is outdoors and in the middle of August, the event has a very “T-Shirt & Sandal” vibe to it which coincides well with the tropical atmosphere of Coconut Grove. This is the sixth year the event is being held and Grove Cares Board Members anticipate that this will be our most successful event to date due to the overwhelming support the event has received from the community.
