Linking AIDS awareness with the Motor City’s long love affair with the Chevrolet Corvette, the Michael Chetcuti Foundation and General Motors are partnering with AIDS Walk Detroit for a special Woodward Dream Cruise fundraising event.
On Aug. 15, Michael Chetcuti and Kyle Evans will open their famous home in downtown Royal Oak to AIDS Walk Detroit for a pre-Dream Cruise cocktail party and benefit. The Corvette-themed party will feature the new 2014 Corvette C7 Stingray, a 1978 Corvette Aero Coupe Concept and two 1966 Corvettes restored and refurbished by Classic Design Concepts.
Tickets are $250 per person. Please contact Christopher Keyes at 248-399-9255 or email events@aidswalkdetroit.org.
“This is a great event that supports two great passions of mine and Kyle Evans’,” said Michael Chetcuti. “We support AIDS Walk Detroit and the great work that they do, and we love classic automobiles – especially American-made cars.
“We thank General Motors for supporting this event by letting us display these vehicles,” Chetcuti added. “The Corvette is an icon of American industry and Detroit culture. Let’s have fun, celebrate Detroit and raise funds and awareness for a great charity that combats AIDS. Drive local. We do.”
The Chetcuti-Evans house is a sprawling, modernist/automotive themed home in a converted industrial building. The open floor plan joins indoors and out over two floors and envelops an enclosed courtyard with a fountain. Typically there are several classic cars on the property with up to two vehicles in the living room.
Virtually every architectural detail in the home was designed and fabricated by Chetcuti and Evans. The home has won several design and community beautification awards; it has been photographed and featured in a number of home and design publications. In September of 2012, Chetcuti and Evans hosted a private fundraising event that featured President Bill Clinton.
