In support of AIDS Walk Detroit, 10 percent of all sales at Leon & Lulu and all raffle and tip money raised during the event benefit AIDS Walk Detroit. Courtesy of Whole Foods and Best Buy, two of the walk's sponsors, appetizers and a video displey of AIDS Walk information will be provided at the reception.
The reception is at 6 p.m. March 1 at Leon & Lulu, 96 W. 14 Mile Road in Clawson. A presentation at 7 p.m. will debut this year's theme and premiere the new AIDS Walk Detroit App for the iPhone. For more information, call 248-288-3600 or go to http://www.leonandlulu.com.
