GRiZMAS, GRiZ’s beloved charitable event series, is back this year, giving us a sense of normalcy that fans have come to look forward to every year since 2013. Though this year is primarily online, the cause stays the same, with all proceeds going to Seven Mile Music, a non-profit raising awareness and funds for music, arts, and coding programs for Detroit’s inner city youth.
The event officially kicks off tomorrow with killer crafts and cocktails, and will culminate with a mini digital festival on December 23 featuring GRiZ himself alongside Destructo, AC Slater, J.Worra, Blunts & Blondes, and more.
Tomorrow’s event features a step-by-step holiday drink creation from Standby Detroit mixologists. Check out the other events and activities coming up below:

“Since 2014, GRiZ’s ‘12 Days of GRiZMAS’ series has made a true impact across Detroit communities, raising over $200,000 in the last two years alone. With Detroit public schools under more pressure than ever there has never been a more important time for GRiZ to support the city that raised him. Together with local non-profit Seven Mile, GRiZMAS aims to raise funds for music education, art programs and coding lessons all of which are vital creative outlets for urban youth. GRiZ has received the ‘Spirit of Detroit’ award for his work around GRiZMAS, which has been called an ‘utterly sincere community effort’ by The Guardian.
GRiZ’s signature coffee will make its return in partnership with The Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Co. Last year, GRiZMAS Coffee was able to draw praise from seasoned baristas and casual coffee drinker alike, selling thousands of bags with 100% of proceeds going towards music education in Detroit. Moving towards single-origin Ethiopian beans for the 2020 effort, GRiZMAS Coffee will be the highest quality in both value and flavour.”
