“The one major thing that inspired Mayor Burcroff and I to join together in order to put on this event is that we share a border, but more importantly…it’s about the kids,” said Mayor Kerreen Conley.

With Boys & Girls Clubs serving Romulus, Belleville, Inkster and Sumpter and Van Buren townships, one hundred percent of the $40k in proceeds generated from Saturday’s event will go to impact more than 400 area families.

“If it wasn’t for your support, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do with what we have to support these kids in your community,” said Area Club Director, Jill Covell.
