Gravelin benefit a success

A spaghetti fundraiser, bake sale and raffle for local martial arts instructor Terry Gravelin was a success, according to organizer Clarisa Keuhs.

“It went very well. A great deal of money was raised for him between the dinner, and donations and the bake sale/cake walk,” said Keuhs.

The benefit was held last Saturday in the Cedar Springs Public Library community room. 

Gravelin recently had triple bypass heart surgery, and with no income coming in the bills have been mounting. The families of his students wanted to do something to help him keep his karate school open and came up with the idea for the benefit.

Benefit dinner for Terry Gravelin



A community benefit dinner has been planned on March 2 to raise funds for Terry Gravelin, owner and chief instructor of American Martial Arts Institute here in Cedar Springs.

Gravelin recently had triple bypass heart surgery, and with no income coming in the bills have been mounting. The families of his students wanted to do something to help him keep his karate school open, so they are having a spaghetti dinner including garlic bread, dessert, and a drink.

The dinner will be held on March 2, from 4-8 p.m. at the Cedar Springs Public Library. The cost is $6 for ages 12 and over; $4 for ages 4-11 and seniors; and free for ages 3 and under.

They are also having a bake sale and raffle for gift cards, gift certificates, gift baskets and other items. 

Come show your appreciation for his dedication to the community in teaching his students more than martial arts—he also teaches life skills, respect, dedication, discipline, motivation, good character, and confidence. 

Any questions call 231-282-1177.
