Looking to take a date to an event that means something? If you want to show your charitable side, why not take your date to a charity event? It’s for a great cause, and why not try to be involved at the same time. Don't have a date? Thats OK, mix and mingle and meet people, like you, who have an interest in helping.
There is one local event causing some local excitment. It's for a great cause and is sure to be a great for a date night. New organization, Cancer Rockstar, founded by Meredith Bezak, is holding its Kickoff Fundraiser and Afterglow party at D’Amato’s and Good Night Gracie's in Royal Oak on June 10, 2010.
Cancer Rockstar was launched in February 2010, by Founder and CEO, Bezak, with her Cancer Rockstar partner and college friend Rhiannon Capling. Cancer Rockstar’s mission is to unite cancer fighters with their favorite music artists through free concert tickets, autographed band merchandise, and personalized messages from band members. Additional monies raised by the organization will be donated for cancer awareness, research, and support groups.
The Kickoff Fundraiser will be held at Goodnight Gracie's in Royal Oak at 5pm. There will be a silent auction with all sorts of goodies from local businesses that so generously donated products and services. Even more, the event boasts music to be inspired by from The John Arnold Trio featuring Pathe Jassi.
Can’t make it that early? No problem, there is an afterglow fundraiser starting at 9pm in D’Amato’s Restaurant attached to Goodnight Gracie's. The afterglow will feature more fundraising efforts, including a 50/50 raffle, and a performance from Metro Times Best of Detroit winner Odayin. More music? Of course! Cancer Rockstar would live up to their name. DJ Urban Kris and urban percussionist, Jared Sykes are also on the bill. There is a recommended donation of $20, but not mandatory. I say for all that music; $20 is worth it and helps an amazing cause at the same time. Besides, Goodnight Gracie's has some of the best martini's this side of the Mississippi.
