Aug. 6, 2015; MLive

GRAND RAPIDS, MI — The winners of the 2015 Grand Cocktail contest were announced Wednesday night at Gravity Taphouse Grille. Bartenders at select restaurants participating in this year’s upcoming Restaurant Week promotion have been competing to win cash and prizes, including an all-expense paid trip to Woodford Reserve located along the Bourbon Trail near Louisville, Ky.

… This year looks to be a milestone for the promotion that donates one dollar from every meal sold by each of the restaurants to a student scholarship fund at the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education at Grand Rapids Community College. Since 2010, Restaurant Week Grand Rapids’ participating restaurants have donated over $90,000 to the fund and will break the six-figure barrier in 2015.
