On April 7th, BARD will be hosting the 6th Annual Show Your Love for Detroit event in NYC at The Bowery Hotel. Following successful years past, the foundation will bring Metro-Detroit-raised New Yorkers, and others who share a passion for the city back together again for a fundraising affair, filled with live music, an open bar and a noteworthy silent auction.
Since 2011, Born & Raised Detroit (BARD) has been dedicated to keeping Detroiters connected across the United States in efforts to support and contribute to the city of Detroit, making it a hopeful place for future generations.
“Experiences that positively contribute to the upbringing of Detroit’s youth lie at the core of Born & Raised Detroit.” –Parker Lynch, Founder
Last year’s event attracted over 500 young professionals, aged 25-40, raising more than $60,000 for youth-based charities taking place on the ground in Metro-Detroit. In total, over the past five years, BARD has raised more than $350,000, donating significant amounts to non-profits, such as Alternatives for Girls, Racquet Up Detroit, Horizons Upward Bound,Detroit Music Hall, Beyond Basics, and the Ruth Ellis Center.
