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.
