DBCFSN 10th Anniversary Celebration

Dear Friend and Supporter:

This year, the Detroit Black Food Community Security Network (DBCFSN) celebrates 10 years of working for Food Justice and Sovereignty in Detroit!  Thank you for your support in helping to achieve this milestone.  We will celebrate this occasion on Friday, April 22, 2016 at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History with a reception at 6:00 p.m., followed by a festive concert with hip-hop and spoken word artist Mama Sol.

The 10th anniversary celebration is an opportunity for our network of friends and supporters to revel in the milestones made by DBCFSN, honor a respected member of our community, and enjoy good music.  We want you to participate.  There are several levels of participation including:  Sponsorships at $5,000, $2,500, and $1,000.  Sponsorships include opportunities to advertise at various levels along with tickets to the event.  Individual tickets are available at $25.00 and $50.00.  The $25.00 ticket includes the music celebration with Mama Sol and the $50.00 ticket includes both the music celebration and the reception. 

Our work could not be accomplished without your support.  We thank you and want to see you at the 10th anniversary celebration.  For more information use the contact form on the left-side of our home page or call our office at (313) 345-3663.
