CLAWSON – On Thursday, Sept. 15, Clawson’s Frittata Restaurant will host a breakfast benefit for Alternatives for Girls, a Detroit program for homeless girls and girls at high risk for teen pregnancy and violence.
The event is being sponsored by Jodi Bollaert and Kim Rummler, owners of Blue Sun Works, Inc., a Web design and usability consulting firm.
“People always ask me what one person can do,” said Alternatives for Girls CEO Amanda L. Good. “Well, here are two people who came together out of a shared concern that did not end with talk. They put their heads together and created an opportunity to educate their community and inspire people to get involved. Alternatives For Girls, and the girls and young women we serve, need more people like them.”
The breakfast will be held from 7:30-10:30 a.m. In addition to the Italian omelets that are the restaurant’s signature dish, the breakfast benefit will feature live music provided by Gypsy Strings of Detroit, door prizes and a conversation with Good.
“We are very proud to have this opportunity to promote and celebrate AFG’s good works,” said Bollaert. “Caring metro Detroiters can become mentors, offer a business service, or make an in-kind or financial contribution to help; we just think that breakfast at Frittata – one of our personal favorites in south Oakland County – will be a fun way to connect with people.”
Founded in 1987, the AFG Shelter is the only Detroit shelter for homeless young women, 16 to 20 years of age, who are not being served by the foster care or judicial systems.
Tickets are available for $50, $30 of which is tax deductible.
Seating is limited; reservations are available by phone at 313-361-4000, ext. 223 and online at
