Fundraiser in the Alley

Friends of the Alley (FOTA) is a downtown Flint-based nonprofit that has been hosting a free, annual summer festival in Buckham Alley, and now both Buckham and Brush Alleys, every July since 2011! All funds raised are used to beautify the alleys and host events that showcase downtown Flint for locals and visitors. Now we want to kickoff the summer and bring a new event to downtown Flint:
