The event opens with an hors d’oeuvres reception at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m. The menu is representative of the varied ethnicities in the Detroit area and will feature corn chowder with cherry-smoked pork, coney dogs, smoked salmon deviled eggs, Greek salad with feta mousse, aged cheddar grits, turnip greens and bacon-stuffed quail and ice-cream puffs. There will also be a silent auction, a photo booth, live music and a dance performance.
