The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) today announced that tickets for the Charity Preview, Detroit's premier black-tie gala, are now on sale. The event, which raises millions for children's charities, will take place at Detroit's Cobo Center, Fri., Jan. 13, 2012. Charity Preview is presented by RBS Charter One.
Tickets are $250, $240 of which is tax deductible. Proceeds from this elegant event support vital services for children of all ages in the Detroit metro area. Since 1976 the NAIAS Charity Preview has raised over $84 million for southeast Michigan children's charities - over $33 million of which was raised in the last seven years alone.
"Charity Preview is proof that the people of our region are among the most generous in the world," said Bill Perkins, NAIAS 2012 chairman. "In good times and in bad, we roll out the red carpet for our guests and they respond, year-after-year, and help make Charity Preview one of the largest, single-night fundraisers for children anywhere in the world." And, Perkins added, "We look forward to welcoming everyone interested in exciting cars and entertainment to the biggest event in the Motor City supporting children's charities, and the best of the auto industry."
