Detroit’s giving spirit will shine brightly again on Friday, Jan. 19 as thousands attend Charity Preview, the largest annual single-night fundraiser in the world. Since 1976, Charity Preview has raised more than $112 million for southeastern Michigan children’s charities, over $41 million of which was raised in the last 10 years alone.
Considered one of the most exclusive high-profile events in the nation, Charity Preview draws a long list of industry luminaries, community leaders, celebrities and professional athletes. The black-tie event directly benefits a wide range of children’s charities, helping to fund services for children of all ages from birth to 18.
Proceeds from this year’s Charity Preview will benefit the following children’s charities: Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan, Boys Hope Girls Hope Detroit, Children’s Center, The Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation, Detroit Auto Dealers Association Charitable Foundation Fund, Detroit PAL, Judson Center and March of Dimes Metro Detroit.
Motown’s very own, The Four Tops will be performing on Cobo’s Atrium stage at 9 p.m., followed by the ever- popular Your Generation in Concert, from 10 p.m. – midnight.
Charity Preview tickets are $400 per person, $390 of which is tax deductible.
