Last year, Trenton Rotary brought the “Rockin the D Downriver” to Crystal Gardens to the “D” light of 500 partygoers. This year, on March 3, the club will be “Rockin’ the D” again at 6 p.m. at Crystal Gardens in Southgate. With a fresh look at Detroit entertainment, guests can expect some really “Cool Jams” again this year.
The affair includes a dinner buffet, dancing and an open bar, Detroit-themed auction items and plenty of interactive activities throughout the night to make attendees feel like they are in the heart of the city, right here in Southgate.
This year’s event will feature local DJ Ron Hyde of High Altitude Entertainment, focusing on all Detroit dance tunes.
“Many people who have attended prior Rotary events have used the event as a very practical venue for a company party or an opportunity to entertain their family, friends and clients.” Ray Yee, co-chairman for the event said.
Ticket pricing includes a quantity discount for those who really want to make it a “party.” One to nine tickets are $50 each in advance; 10-19 tickets are $45 each until Jan. 15, making this a very affordable value for an evening.
This “D-lightful” event will also offer a full range of reasonably priced sponsorship opportunities that provide valuable local exposure both onsite and through event promotion and marketing efforts. Sponsor opportunities include: for $2,500, The Big “D” sponsorship, the business that sponsors the Big “D” will be featured on the main screen all evening and includes 20 reserved VIP ticket seating, a full page ad in program and website listing. The “D” Entertainment Sponsor will be Drs. Jackson Snider & Parker DDS this year. More sponsorship information is available online at www.trentonrotary.net.
The event also will feature silent and “super mega” silent auctions throughout the evening, as well as a variety of prize drawings. The list of auction items will range from themed gift baskets to Detroit getaways and vacations, plus a few unique surprise offerings.
Trenton Rotary supports more than 50 different charities or events each year by its donations and volunteer efforts. Proceeds from last year’s “D Downriver” aided a number of causes, including providing funds to support programs for ChristNet, Penrickton Center for Blind Children, the St. Philips of Trenton Food Pantry, a dental clinic and medical clinic in Nicaragua, and Trenton High School’s Food for the Hungry, to name just a few.
