Thursday, May 18, 2017 • Eastern Market, Shed 5 • 6:30 p.m.
ORT’s Spring fundraiser, “ORT and the City,” is taking place on Thursday, May 18th at 6:30 p.m. at Eastern Market (Shed 5) in Detroit. The event, for both men and women, attracted over 400 attendees in 2016 – those from the suburbs, those from Detroit, those passionate about the arts, those ages 20 something to 70 something, representing some of the most prominent and influential members of the community – all gathering to network and enjoy a celebration of art in the city. This year, we will be auctioning off chairs designed by nationally recognized Detroit artists, who are hand selected and sponsored by high profile, local gallery owners and art collectors. A strolling dinner is served via food trucks driven directly into the Shed and an open bar includes signature cocktails.
The 2016 Presenting Sponsor was Somerset Collection. Other sponsors included: Kenwal; The Suburban Collection; Mackey & Mackey; Danialle & Peter Karmanos, Jr.; Nicole & Matt Lester; B.May; The Mike Morse Law Firm; Neiman Marcus; Steinhardt, Pesick, & Cohen; The Law Offices of Kristen Gross; Donut Bar; Fabulous Events; Jay Dreifus Photography; Star Trax Events; Sykes International; Tito’s Handmade Vodka; Yo Fresh; Hour Magazine; Bigalora; The Pita Post; Plum Market; El Guapo; and Sunny Media Group. Last year’s event generated over $100,000 to support classes offered at ORT’s educational programs, benefiting underprivileged students.
