It was all smiles and hugs at the Thank You event for AIDS Walk Detroit Dec. 12 at the fabulous and eclectic Leon & Lulu store in Clawson. Owner Mary Liz Curtin welcomed guests and honorees, and encouraged the crowd of about 150 people to continue their support in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Curtin said she would donate 10 percent of all sales that evening to AIDS Walk Detroit.
