On Saturday, June 14, the DSO will honor Detroit luminaries Dan Gilbert and Matt Cullen at the fourth annual Heroes Gala Dinner, aiming to raise more than $1 million for the DSO. The dinner and dancing will take place immediately following a special one-night-only fundraising concert by Oscar-winning composer John Williams and legendary director Steven Spielberg in Orchestra Hall benefitting the DSO. Gala Dinner packages, which also include tickets to this special concert, are available for purchase now.
Beyond their well-documented dedication to the transformation of the city of Detroit, Gilbert, Founder and Chairman of Rock Ventures and Quicken Loans, and Cullen, President and CEO of Rock Ventures, were instrumental in working through the mediation process between the DSO and its musicians in 2011 and arranged the DSO’s wildly successful Kid Rock concert in 2012, which raised $1 million for the organization. The two Detroit visionaries have contributed generously to the DSO by helping to raise funds necessary to support its extensive community work in schools, places of worship, senior living centers and beyond. The DSO’s newly ratified three-year contract with its musicians makes it particularly fitting to recognize Gilbert and Cullen’s significant contributions to this process.
The celebration will include a gourmet dinner, dessert reception, late-night dancing, and other special activities, all taking place at the Max M. Fisher Music Center.
