Sweet Summer Night Thank You!

Our Sweet Summer Night launch party was a big success. We had a great time and raised several
thousand dollars for our capital campaign thanks to Bon Bon Bon and Detroit City Distillery who served
up drinks and chocolate for everyone. Thanks to all our sponsors: Hamtramck Recycling LLC, the
Hamtramck Review, Euro-mini Mart, Dunwell Dry Goods for making this a great kick off to buy our own
building. A special thanks to Emily Wood for her beautiful illustration of our new home. Please help if
you can and donate on Generosity to: RT Furniture Bank needs a forever home.
