Shimmer on the River

Shimmer on the River is the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy’s largest annual fundraiser. The VIP event honored founding Detroit Riverfront Conservancy board member, Nettie Seabrooks, for her role in the revitalization of the Detroit Riverfront. Shimmer on the River guests were treated to music from Motown legends The Four Tops, unlimited food at the Shimmer Food Truck Rally, refreshments, and access to the Adventure Park filled with games and rides for kids. The weather was wet but that did not stop the patrons from attending and enjoying the event, which raised $200,000.
