The latest happenings at ORT America.

Michigan Region: Rub-a-Dub @ Franklin Hills Country Club
Aug 18 @ 5:30 PM

ORT Michigan’s largest fundraiser, Rub-a-Dub is considered the premier charity event of the summer and a great opportunity to network with metro Detroit’s most influential business leaders and community members.

The Rub-a-Dub event starts with hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and an extensive silent auction with high-end items. Guests then move outdoors for an elaborate barbeque dinner and a live auction offering trips, jewelry, automobile leases, and one-of-a-kind experiences that money cannot buy. Additionally, the event includes a raffle with a $5,000 Somerset Collection gift card as the grand prize, and you do not need to be at the event to win.
