Main St. in Kalamazoo.

Guests can also donate $1 to be entered into the NKFM raffle.  The grand prize winner will take home a Kindle Fire e-reader; other prizes include free noodles for a year or a dinner for four.  All proceeds from the raffle will go to the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan.

This is the fourth year for the benefit.
