About North Kent Pastors’ Feud

North Kent Connect is excited to announce this year’s theme for its annual fundraiser:  “North Kent Pastors’ Feud,” a game show in the style of Family Feud. The event takes place on Thursday, October 4 at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. Grazing stations with hearty appetizers and hors d’oeuvres will start at 6:00 p.m. with the program beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Teams made up of pastors, Rotarians, and Lions Club members battle against each other by naming the most popular answer to various survey questions, often to hilarious results.

Table sponsorships are now on sale and going quickly. Single tickets, if available, will go on sale Tuesday, September 11.

Proceeds from North Kent Pastors’ Feud will benefit the food and educational programs of North Kent Connect, a resource center serving northern Kent County.
