Abby Teasley grew up in Mexico, and moved to the United States in 1999.

Saturday, she got a taste of her homeland as Grand Haven hosted the inaugural Hispanic Heritage Fiesta at Central Park.

Go to the provided link and see how the Hispanic Community supported Rev Cramer’s stunt:

Grand Haven Hispanic Heritage Fiesta Event



Sponsorship:

La Familia/The Family – Zero Contributions



Sponsorship: Los Padrinos/The Godparents – Zero Contributions



Sponsorship: Los Primos/The Cousins – Zero Contributions



Sponsorship: Los Amigos/The Friends – Zero Contributions



Food Vendor: Zero Contributions



Mercado Vendor: Zero Contributions





It appears the ‘contributions’ were limited to our tax dollars, which are not contributions at all.

Actually, Vlad, that link is where you make donations. It doesn’t list who donated. That is in the program book online here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xnh6yy594vroyg4/FiestaBrochure.pdf?dl=0



As you can see, a wide variety of organizations came together to sponsor the event—over $20,000 in sponsorships. Happy to clear up that confusion for you. :-)

Thank you for the additional information in clarification

Contrary to my assumption, your new link appears to show that the City of Grand Haven, Grand Haven Public Schools, and Ottawa County were the only taxpayer funded entities that contributed to your event. I regret my error.
