Beyond Basics Literacy Luncheon

May 20, 2019

Beyond Basic hosted its Literacy Luncheon fundraiser at the Detroit Athletic Club to honor individuals who are bettering Detroit and the world. The event honored Laurie & Tom Cunnington as Humanitarians of the Year and also recognized Emily & Henry Ford III, Andrea & Chris Lambert and Kuhu Saha & David Merritt as Bettering Detroit Honorees. The Dedicated Giving portion of the program was successfully led Jack Krasula and matched by the Webber Foundation. The $105,000 raised from the luncheo  will be used to fund Beyond Basics, a literacy non-profit dedicated to one-on-one reading intervention.
