'Tis the season for giving and toking.

Michigan’s own saxophone-wielding, Kush-smoking philanthropist (and also, DJ, musician, and producer), GRiZ, is coming home for the holidays, just in time to host his annual 12-day charity event.

The 12 Days of GRiZMAS is returning for the fourth year in a row, and some things have changed. But, the event's purpose remains the same. Since its inception, the series of fundraisers has brought in over $30,000 for Little Kids Rock, an organization that funds music education in Detroit public schools.

The give-a-thon concludes each year with GRiZMAS, a two-night concert extravaganza at the Detroit Masonic Temple. Though both the Dec. 15 and 16 shows are sold out, The Night Before GRiZMAS performance has been added to the lineup and will take over the
Royal Oak Music Theatre on Dec. 14. Tickets are still available.

If you're totally Grinch'ing because you won't be GRiZ'ing, don't.
This year's GRiZMAS will include a slew of fan-involved activities like Christmas caroling, bowling, a roller disco night, yoga, and a GRiZMACON bar crawl.

Dec 5 – GRiZMAS Pop Up Shop Grand Opening
Dec 6 – Caroling on The Q and Campus Martius
Dec 7 – Bowling Night
Dec 8 – Mystery TBD Event
Dec 9 – GRiZMACON Bar Crawl
Dec 10 – Yoga @ The Fisher Building Lobby
