This Weekend: In Seventh Heaven – Magic and Music in Motown
Park West Gallery CEO Albert Scaglione and his wife, Mitsie, have once again come through in a big way for For The Seventh Generation, a nonprofit organization that matches donations of goods and services with needy foster children in the metro Detroit area.
This year, the Scaglione’s Park West Foundation has donated several items for auction at the charity’s yearly fundraiser, In Seventh Heaven – Magic and Music in Motown, which will take place at the Roostertail on June 30.
“The Scagliones have been among our most enthusiastic, most generous supporters since the founding of For The Seventh Generation,” said For The Seventh Generation Executive Director Lorraine Weber. “Thanks to them, we are poised to take off and help more foster children than ever before.”
“The Park West Foundation is very supportive of the Seventh Generation because our aims and goals for the needy children of Michigan follow the same course – to make available their everyday needs of medical, education and overall care they all need so desperately,” said Mitsie Scaglione. “We need more organizations that put the child first, as Seventh Generation has.”
The Scagliones are among several members of metro Detroit’s artistic and music communities who are coming out to support the foster children charity’s annual fundraiser. In addition to the Park West Foundation contributions, In Seventh Heaven will be raffling or auctioning contributions from Kelly Ramsey Photography, Motown memorabilia autographed by the Four Tops’ Duke Abdul Fakir, and two guitars autographed by Kid Rock. The Jill Jack Band, local DJ legend Linda Lexy, and Grammy-nominated local jazz ensemble Straight Ahead are headlining the event, which will begin at 7 pm.
Tickets for In Seventh Heaven – Magic and Music in Motown are $100 per person and are available online through the For The Seventh Generation website at www.fortheseventhgeneration.org. Space is limited; reserve early.
