Ilitches\' summer event picks up steam
Thorsten Kaye is among the Hollywood celebrities scheduled to attend the Summer Soiree and Celebrity Golf Classic.
DETROIT – On August 24, and August 25, 2008, Ilitch Charities will hold its Summer Soiree and Celebrity Golf Classic to benefit two important local charities. Both events will give metro Detroiters the rare opportunity to mix and mingle with top celebrities. In addition to personalities like Al Kaline, Steve Yzerman and many other current and past professional sports figures that made their name right here in the region, national stars including John Cusack, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Thorsten Kaye are expected to participate.

“Both events are turning out to be hot tickets,” said Ilitch Charities Chairman Christopher Ilitch, who is also president and CEO of Ilitch Holdings, Inc.  “We are really excited about the level of support from the business, sports and media communities, and we are especially pleased to have several entertainment stars joining in as well.  This will be a unique and fun experience for anyone interested in supporting our community.”

The events will raise funds to support The Greening of Detroit and The Guidance Center, with each receiving a grant of up to a $100,000. Presenting sponsors for both events are Buick, GM R Works and MotorCity Casino Hotel.
