The Grand Rapids Business Journal will honor 40 of the region’s top young professionals this month.

The publication’s annual 40 Under 40 party will be held from 5-8 p.m. on Oct. 24 at the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre.

Each year, the awards recognize individuals making a difference in West Michigan through their business successes, entrepreneurial leadership and community service.

The keynote speaker at this year’s event will be 40 Under 40 Distinguished Alumnus Tami VandenBerg, co-owner of The Pyramid Scheme and The Meanwhile bars and executive director of Well House, a nonprofit fighting homelessness. VandenBerg was a member of GRBJ’s 40 Under 40 classes of 2009 through 2014.

The event will feature food, drinks and a musical performance by the Michigan-based Beatles tribute band Shout!

General admission tickets to the 21-and-older event are $40. Group general admission, for four or more people, is $30 per person. A block of seven seats can be reserved for $300. Honorees get in free.

Tickets are available online.
