The event will start Thursday at noon. On Saturday, a paid charity event will take place with live entertainment and food and drink offers. The event will raise funds for eight Detroit children’s charities: Boys and Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan, Boys Hope Girls Hope Detroit, Children’s Center, The Children’s Foundation, Detroit PAL, Judson Center, March of Dimes Metro Detroit and University of Michigan CS Mott Children’s Hospital.
The exhibition of vehicles and activities will be free. Ticket prices and a list of entertainment featured for the August 7 charity event have yet to be announced.
