DETROIT –
The Roostertail will play host June 30, to some of the metro area’s most well-known and loved entertainers, during a fundraising event for an organization benefitting foster children in Wayne County. The event begins at 7 p.m.
Perennial Detroit Music Award winners the Jill Jack Band and radio host Linda Lexy, will join the Grammy-nominated jazz ensemble Straight Ahead on the indoor and outdoor stages during In Seventh Heaven – Magic and Music in Motown, the annual fundraising event for For The Seventh Generation, a Wayne County organization that matches foster children with donations of goods and services.
“For The Seventh Generation does fantastic work for foster kids in Wayne County – they match children with orthodontic care, make it possible for them to do cool things like create their own comic books, and they’ve even come up with prom dresses for teens who couldn’t otherwise afford to go to the prom,” said Lexy, who hosts the weekly show “Linda Lexy’s Party Train” live from the MotorCity Casino Hotel’s Radio Bar.
This year’s event will mark the launch of Play It Forward!, a new signature program in association with Sonya Mastick, owner of the The Lesson Rooms in Royal Oak, to provide free music lessons and instruments to foster children.
“For The Seventh Generation is about helping foster children thrive, and with the launch of Play It Forward we’ll be able to make hundreds of children’s dreams come true in the years to come,” said Lorraine Weber, FTSG executive director and member of the In Seventh Heaven organizing committee
Tickets for In Seventh Heaven – Magic and Music in Motown are $100 per person and are available online through the For The Seventh Generation website at http://www.fortheseventhgeneration.org.
