2011 FOOTBALL KICKOFF DINNER
Celebrate the opening of Michigan Football’s 132nd season and kick off the Brady Hoke era with the University of Michigan Club of Greater Detroit!
On Monday, August 29, the Club will present the annual Football Kickoff Dinner at Park Place Catering in Dearborn, located at 23400 Park Street, near Michigan Avenue and Outer Drive.
You’re invited to wear your Maize and Blue as we prepare for each game of the 2011 season – from the season opener versus Western Michigan through the home finale against “that school in Ohio,” as Coach Hoke has so routinely called Michigan’s greatest rival since his first day back in Ann Arbor.
The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails, wine, and a Club favorite, Ann Arbor’s own Wolverine Beer! The evening will continue with dinner at 6, followed by the speaking program and drawings at approximately 7:30.
Guest speakers scheduled to attend include: Detroit News beat reporter Angelique Chengelis, one of Detroit’s long-standing and most reliable voices on the University of Michigan and Detroit sporting scenes; Brian Cook, the owner and primary editor of the immensely popular MGoBlog.com, the Web’s go-to home for Michigan athletics analysis; and Greg Dooley, who, as the editor of MVictors.com, brings a leading historical perspective to Michigan’s generations of athletics tradition.
The three speakers will discuss their outlooks for the 2011 season, answer questions from the Club, and provide their analysis for where Michigan has been and where Michigan can go.
The cost to attend the Kickoff Dinner remains $35 this season. As always, the Club will hold a raffle for Michigan memorabilia, with proceeds going to the Club’s scholarship fund.
Please use the reservation form below and respond by Friday, August 19. Please note that space is limited, and remember that last year’s event sold out before the deadline. No reservations will be accepted without advance payment.
Tickets will not be mailed; registered guests will check in upon arrival. Those making credit card orders will see their accounts charged after the completion of the event.
For more information, please contact Mike Khomutin at email@example.com.
We’ll fill Michigan Stadium on September 3 for the season opener, so let’s do the same at Park Place five days earlier and prepare for a fantastic 2011 Michigan season!
Go Blue! Your Kickoff Chairs: Mike Khomutin, Heidi Haite, Bill Wenzell, Kurt O’Keefe, and Griffin Hickman
