Welcoming a steady crowd of Detroit's young professionals, the 2nd Annual lift: Detroit Gala was held at the Detroit Historical Museum this past Saturday.

 The events main goal was to lift Detroit and bring together professionals of all backgrounds together to encourage and promote a stronger Detroit.


Featured entertainment included singer Sam Kay, speed painter, Dave Santia who was an absolute crowd pleaser a ton of fun to watch.  Hip Hop violinist, Horatiu Ormindeanu known to the music world as H. Dean rocked his violin with rythmic and titillating strokes. 


Featured items from My Brown Box and Detroit vs. Everybody were among other local Detroit products being silent auctioned. 
Of course, I did a bit of networking!

It was great seeing and meeting new and old friends!

 Liz and I took advantage of a promotion of one of the events sponsors and had an Uber car chauffeur us for the evening in a sleek black car. Honestly, we felt like royalty all night! Our driver Jayson was a complete gentleman as Liz and I chit chatted before and after the event. It was a ton of fun!
