Since there have been a couple recent posts about where to donate tickets, I thought this would be timely and appropriate.
While at UM Law, I volunteered to help people from around the world who fled torture and persecution in their home countries and wound up in Detroit. The organization is called Freedom House, and my experience there was so moving that I've stayed involved several years after graduating and becoming a "lawya."
Freedom House has its Annual Dinner and Silent Auction on November 11 and is hoping that someone will donate any manner of sports tickets (preferably for a University of Michigan team) for the auction. Tickets to the Michigan v. Wisconsin football game would be miraculous. B-ball tickets to basically any Michigan game would be amazing. Anything and everything helps, except Michigan State tickets; sorry -- it's a good cause, but you have to draw the line somewhere.
Here is information on the event: http://www.freedomhousedetroit.org/index.php
This short video about Freedom House has some technical issues but is still moving: http://www.freedomhousedetroit.org/watch-our-videos.php
If you want to donate tickets, please chime in or contact Alexa Stanard at [email protected]
