Life Remodeled’s First “Prom Remodeled” Benefits Detroit Neighborhoods With A Grown-up Twist on a School Tradition
Life Remodeled, the Detroit-based nonprofit organization focused on repurposing vacant properties into one-stop hubs of opportunity for entire families to thrive, plans a one-of-a-kind fundraiser designed to provide generous Detroiters with a chance to remodel one of the rites of youth – the high school prom.
On Saturday, May 13, 2023 from 7-11 p.m., Life Remodeled will host the first Prom Remodeled at the organization’s Durfee Innovation Society building, once a school and now a neighborhood hub of services and experiences for Detroit families. Prom Remodeled will transform the building for one night into an evening of couples clad in tuxedos and prom dresses – all to raise funds to expand Life Remodeled’s strategy of neighborhood revitalization that lasts. Because of Prom Remodeled, more Detroit students and families will have access to math and reading enrichment, health and wellness services and job training and development opportunities, all to raise funds for neighborhood revitalization programs like math and reading enrichment, health and wellness services and job training and development opportunities.
Featuring live music from classic national acts Gin Blossoms and Montell Jordan, Prom Remodeled will offer attendees heavy hors d’oeuvres from some of Detroit’s leading restaurants such as Baobab Fare, Casa Amado, Flowers of Vietnam, Oak and Reel, SheWolf, Townhouse, Union Joints and Wright & Company and beverages from Great Lakes Wine and Spirits.
“Prom Remodeled will be a chance to re-do or re-live your prom experience as we bring together some of the most dynamic difference-makers from Detroit neighborhoods where Life Remodeled has partnered and a who’s who list of the Detroit philanthropic community,” said Life Remodeled founder and CEO Chris Lambert. “So… will you go to Prom with us?”
