ORT in the City

ORT’s fifth Annual Spring fundraiser, ORT and the City, took place at Eastern Market in Shed 5 in Detroit. Over 500 guests attended the event which was deemed a celebration of Detroit, art, and culture, while promoting ORT’s mission of educating for life. A silent auction featured one-of-a-kind art designed by emerging and nationally recognized Detroit artists. Elizabeth Belkin, Stephanie Freedman, and Marlo Scott served as co-chairs. The event raised over $100,000 to support ORT’s global mission of impacting lives through education.
