The Auto Show Charity Preview is known as the largest single-night fundraiser in the world, raising nearly $5.2 million for southeastern Michigan children’s charities. Mike Morse Law Firm was proud to be one of this year’s sponsors.
It was truly a night to remember –the cars, the people, and the chance to raise much-needed funds for eight local children’s charities. I was thrilled to attend this year’s auto show Charity Preview at Cobo with my mom, Susan, as one of the event sponsors. Who better to escort on the red carpet? It was amazing to see more than 12,800 people coming together to support children and Detroit and our amazing auto industry. The buzz in the air for the kids and the city was palpable. Along the way, we stopped to chat with WXYZ-TV Channel 7 during their live charity preview broadcast. (Click on the video below to watch.)
Our firm is deeply committed to children and families in metro Detroit. That’s why we chose to sponsor this amazing and important event. Since 1976, the Charity Preview has raised more than $111 million to support children of all ages from birth to 18 years old. This year’s gala alone raised $5.2 million for the following charities:
- Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan
- Boys Hope Girls Hope Detroit
- Children’s Center
- Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation
- Detroit Auto Dealers Association Charitable Foundation Fund
- Detroit PAL
- Judson Center
- March of Dimes Metro Detroit
To top it all off, on a wintry Detroit night, the Beach Boys performed live in front of the cheering crowd. It felt like a nice touch of summer.
