American Cancer Society’s 2021 Detroit Discovery Ball

December 22, 2021

On Nov. 12, the American Cancer Society held its Detroit Discovery Ball at Eastern Market.


The event, which drew 300 guests, raised more than $500,000 for cancer research. Highlights of the evening included special guest Nicole Curtis, the executive producer and star of HGTV’s “Rehab Addict” (and a Detroit native), and the auction of a 2021 Corvette Stingray donated by Chevrolet. The car was enhanced with artwork by Detroit artist Mike Han; proceeds from its auction will go to the Michigan Cancer Research Fund.
