Metro Detroit native and electronic music artist GRiZ announced his 8th annual "12 Days of GRiZMAS" charity program, which will culminate in a string of three shows at Detroit's Masonic Temple.

The fundraiser went to a livestream format last year due to the pandemic, but this year's festivities include a dodgeball tournament, community workshops, yoga, an open mic night, roller disco, and more.

The fest kicks off at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 1 with a pop-up store at1301 Broadway St. in Detroit. In addition to hawking limited-edition merch, the store is also accepting donations for a coat and toy drive. The pop-up will be open daily from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. through Monday, Dec. 13.

Special guests the Sponges, Kilamanzego, Level Up, Mize, Jantsen, and Veil will open the three performances at the Masonic Temple from Friday, Dec. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 12.

As in past years, GRiZ is also teaming up with Detroit's Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company for special GRiZMAS 2021 Blend, with proceeds going toward Seven Mile, an organization that provides arts programming for local youth.

According to organizers, the GRiZMAS program has raised more than $300,000 in the past few years. GRiZ received a "Spirit of Detroit" award in 2015.
