Charity Gala: The Roaring Twenties
Update: The Ford School Charity Auction has been selected to receive the Forever Go Blue Award for Excellence in Philanthropy Beyond the University of Michigan!
Flapper style, the Charleston dance, and jazz music will be all the rage on Saturday, April 6th when the Ford School hosts its annual Charity Auction Event. The annual charity auction, in its 15th year, is an entirely student run organization that raises money from either a local, national, or international non-profit organization each year. The entire school votes to select a recipient each year. This year\'s beneficiary organization, the Detroit Action Commonwealth, supports the homeless community in Detroit city.
The Charity Auction team is selling tickets through 5:00 pm this Friday, March 29. To reserve a place, look for one of the team members or stop by the table in the Great Hall.
The charity auction committee is now soliciting donations from all members of the Ford School and local communities. These items will then be auctioned at the Kensington Court Hotel for a night of glamour, delicious food, and jazz music. It is a night to experience what the \"Roaring 20\'s\" is all about, where men can channel their inner Charlie Chaplin and women their Joan Crawford while benefiting a good cause.
