I AM HOSTING A CHARITY EVENT DOWNTOWN FRIDAY
I am taking a mini break from the web log. There is a lot going on and I need to take a few days to focus on them.
However, I wanted to take time to invite you to the 9th Annual Loyola High School Benefit this Friday at the Detroit Athletic Club's outdoor parking lot. I am hosting the event prior to the Tigers taking on the Baltimore Orioles at Comerica Park.
Loyola does not take on the best and brightest. It is an all boys Catholic high school on Detroit's west side that turns at risk boys into the best and brightest. It is a cause I hope to champion more in the future because helping our youth become productive citizens is very important.
The school survived the ax that fell a number of high schools in part because the staff there works feverishly to raise money to survive. After touring the school a few weeks ago it is something I felt it was important to get involved.
The pregame party begins at 5 p.m. and lasts until just before the opening pitch. There will be good and drink and don't worry about dressing up. It is casual. But if you want to wear something to impress the ladies that is cool also.
There will be raffles, sports memorabilia silent auctions and the main prize will be a Super Bowl raffle. The winner gets two tickets to Super Bowl XL in Ford Field.
Tickets for the event or Super Bowl raffle can be purchased by calling the school at 313-861-2407.
So come by and say hello. Hopefully we can share a few laughs and help a good cause.
