    Dear Neighbors,

    Here's a unique holiday event you may enjoy right in our neighborhood ...and it benefits two great non-profits.  

    You are invited to the "COLORS OF DETROIT" holiday party to benefit WDET-FM Public Radio and the CONCERT OF COLORS being held at the Motown Mansion, Motown founder Berry Gordy's former home, at 918 West Boston Blvd. on Friday, December 1 starting at 6:30pm. I urge you to review the many enticing features that the grand evening will include at the link below and buy tickets to join the fun before it sells out as the word is spreading and tickets are going fast. Cost is $275. If you want to avoid the Eventbrite fees, you can call me or WDET Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5pm at 313-577-4146 and buy them directly.  

    I'm one of the event co-hosts and would love to see you there! I’m the General Manager at WDET and I'm also on the Advisory Board of the Concert of Colors, Detroit's 31-year-old free music festival that celebrates the rich diversity of Detroit. Both non-profits will share the proceeds from the gala.. Since both WDET WDET 101.9 FM - Detroit's NPR Station) and the Concert of Colors ( are free and open to all, we rely solely on sponsorships, donations, and benefit events like this one.

    There will be Great food, drink and entertainment in a storied mansion.  The Motown Mansion is now owned by arts consultant, U-M alum, and former Ann Arbor Summer Festival director Alan Brown. Alan has been a terrific steward of this historic property.  The home itself provides a warm and welcoming setting for the diverse fare offered by five of Detroit's most celebrated chefs, the live recording of WDET’s  Don Was Motor City Playlist with Don and WDET's Ann Delisi, live music and DJ sets.

    It’s really a one of a kind event with lots of interesting food, drink,  people and things to do and enjoy. It will be a memorable night!  Call or text me at 313 318-1412 with any questions.   This link offers more information including a link to purchase tickets.        Colors of Detroit: A Benefit for WDET & Concert of Colors - WDET 101.9 FM

    The Chicago Lodgers want to make Thanksgiving a day of celebration for all Boston-Edison families.  Our hearts go out to families struggling with food insecurity since holiday celebrations require food.  As the holiday season draws near, the Chicago Lodgers begin to plan for a “New Holiday Tradition”: distributing Holiday Boxes to families in need.

    Chicago Lodgers need your help to identify families that need a Thanksgiving food box.  We also open our new holiday tradition to any Boston-Edison family or block club that is interested in joining us.  The Chicago Lodgers block club is donating turkey, interested families are donating $50 toward the food, and some families will bake holiday cookies.  Once the boxes are created, each donating household will personally deliver the box on an agreed upon November date, just before Thanksgiving.

    Contact Deborah Mohney 248-840-5161, with names of families interested in participating and families needing a holiday celebration box.  Thank you for helping the Chicago Lodgers start a new holiday tradition.
