Hugh mixes vintage and contemporary design aimed at providing the best in
classic bachelor style. Hugh is a one-stop shop for refined home decor,
personal accessories, barware and furniture, and from 5-10 p.m. March 18, the store will be donating 10 percent of its proceeds to the Ruth Ellis Center.
The Ruth Ellis Center provides long-term and short-term residential safe space and support services for runaway, homeless and at-risk LGBT and questioning youth in southeastern Michigan. In 2008 and 2009, youth and young adults walked through the doors of the drop-in center 21,000 times. While the center believes all young people deserve safe space and services, they specialize in providing services to youth who often face rejection or neglect. The center is supported by private donations, grants and limited government support.

“I am thrilled to participate in supporting a safe space and outreach for
LGBTQ homeless youth,” said Joe Posch, Hugh’s owner. “Also, this night
provides a chance to select a one-of-a-kind gift or to find that just-right
addition for your home.”
“We thank Joe for this opportunity at this critical time,” said Bill
Greene, the president of the center’s Board of Directors. “As the Center is reaching out for new donors and advocates, this is an ideal chance to partner with an entrepreneur who has harnessed social media to build his business. The center truly needs funds to keep our drop-in center open.”
Hugh is located at 2233 Park Street in Detroit. The Ruth Ellis Center is located at 77 Victor Street in Highland Park. To learn more about the center, call 313-252-1950 or visit
