About The Gala

Dress Up Wine Down is an exclusive charity Gala that benefits the The Center for Rehabilitation, a partnership with Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital.  100% of the proceeds are used to support patients that need financial assistance with medical equipment, medical transportation, orthotics and other community services to promote rehabilitation services.  The powerful impact for recipients of this help is night and day, and well worth the efforts of the many that organize and execute the event.

Dress Up Wine Down is a fun and magnificent evening out for this worthy cause, providing attendees with the opportunity to dress up more than they usually get a chance to.  Champagne and wine, specialty martinis, a strolling dinner complete with wonderful deserts, dancing and a fully staged, amazing professional runway fashion show that features local “celebrities”, leaders form our community that support the effort to benefit those in need of help with rehabilitation.

Crystal Gardens provides the unparalleled venue, replete with delicious foods, desserts and a full-service bar that, this year for the first time, will include a variety of specialty 007 martinis.  Symon Rentals builds us our fabulous stage, dressing rooms and runway that also serves as the dance floor after the fashion show.  TJ Monte provides lighting, sound, visual effects and excellent DJ services, and the courtesy wines and champagnes are provided by Discount Drinks.  Salon Mischa is our dedicated hair stylist for all the models in the fashion show that features the clothing from Willow Tree fashions and Chelsea Menswear!  All of the services and time that is dedicated to the event are donated or provided “at cost” without profit so as to support the effort.

There are various sponsorship opportunities available, and donations for the silent auction are always welcome, enabling persons, businesses and merchants in the region to participate and be recognized as a part this great event.  Guests enjoy this feature of the event, bidding at will on a wide variety of incredible items donated for the cause, and there is also a 50/50 raffle throughout the evening!

The 2017 Dress Up Wine Down Gala will take place on Saturday, April 29th at Crystal Gardens in Southgate, MI, with doors opening at 6pm!
