The 2018 North American International Auto Show Charity Preview raised $5.1 million for southeastern Michigan children’s charities, including The Children’s Center in Detroit, which hosted its annual AutoGlow at Ford Field following Charity Preview.
More than 900 guests attended the “Casablanca”-themed black-tie 2018 AutoGlow that raised nearly $250,000 for the Ford-sponsored event. Lisa and Bill Ford and Kathy and Jim Hackett served as co-chairs. The Children’s Center provides mental and behavioral health services to 7,500 children and families who are experiencing emotional challenges, trauma from abuse, neglect and poverty.
