Made In Detroit raffles off custom grill to support cancer research at Karmanos
Tuesday, July 02, 2013
Made In Detroit has helped support cancer research at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute by donating a custom-made, Keg Kustoms grill. The grill was recently raffled off, with proceeds benefiting the Institute. Ticket sales started in January and were sold through June at The Detroit Shoppe, Somerset Collection-North as well as at various events and festivals in Michigan. The grill, which sported exhaust pipes and monster truck wheels, was a show-stopper everywhere it went. The official drawing for the grill took place at The Detroit Shoppe on Thursday, June 20, 2013.
“We’d been discussing the idea of donating the grill to a charity, but wanted to make sure it went to a great organization,” said Thomas Dubak, president of Made In Detroit. “Karmanos was a perfect fit for us because all of the funds raised stay right here in Detroit. We are always looking for ways to support local charities, and Karmanos is an outstanding organization.”
The winner of the grill, Terri of Lincoln Park, was ecstatic when she got the call informing her that she was the winner. She said she could hardly believe she won and immediately started thinking about how soon she could get friends and family together for a barbecue. When the grill was delivered to her on June 28, she already had everyone gathered and was ready to put her new grill to use.
Karmanos is extremely grateful to Made In Detroit, Keg Kustoms, The Detroit Shoppe, Somerset Collection and everyone who purchased a ticket to support this cause!
