89.1 WEMU


The Jelly Bean Jump Up is an annual fundraiser to raise money for SafeHouse Center in Ann Arbor, which offers support to those impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault.  The name Jelly Bean Jump Up refers to Zingerman's co-founder Ari Weinzweig’s beloved Corgi, who passed away in 2015.

As part of the fundraiser, a special dinner is taking place Tuesday, March 13th with Molly Stevens, award-winning cookbook author, chef, and teacher at Zingerman's Roadhouse.

89.1 WEMU'S Lisa Barry talked to her about the benefits of braising, roasting, and becoming empowered in the kitchen!

Rutherford Pool Project Nearing Fundraising Goal

Apr 2, 2013

The start of construction on the re-building of Ypsilanti's Rutherford pool is so close you can almost hear the sounds of folks enjoying a cool dip on a hot summer day.  But as WEMU's Bob Eccles reports, work won't begin until $51,000 is raised. 

The "Friends of the Rutherford Pool" have raised $750,ooo to rebuild the public pool used by Ypsilanti residents, but higher than expected costs mean more fundraising needs to be done.  Hear more from WEMU's Andrew Cluley.
