DETROIT – His name is GRiZ and he’s turning his star power into a festive effort to raise money for Seven Mile, an organization that’s serving Detroit’s youth through music & arts.
The initiative kicked off Tuesday night with the opening of the GRiZMAS Workshop in downtown Detroit. Proceeds from all sales will go directly to Seven Mile.
The Workshop is only a piece of a full-fundraising effort. Dubbed the “12 Days of GRiZMAS,” the DJ-music producer-saxophonist is putting on a special event every day until December 14th with the final two days being two always-amazing shows at the Masonic Temple.
In between the Workshop opening and the run at the Masonic, GRiZ will be hosting a secret party somewhere in Detroit, yoga sessions, a bowling night, an evening of holiday jazz and a lot more.
This is the Southfield natives 6th year of holding GRiZMAS in the city.
GRiZ has made a name for himself in the music industry, headlining music festivals like Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits as well as Michigan’s own Electric Forest and Detroit’s own Movement.
