The Children’s Center Tour de Fork

Over 350 people gathered at Eastern Market’s Shed 3 for “Tour de Fork,” a fundraiser for The Children’s Center. Attendees enjoyed an eclectic and rich sampling from dozens of metro Detroit chefs, along with beer, wine and craft cocktails. The event also included art activities, lawn games and food-themed raffle items. Proceeds from the evening benefited The Children’s Center, a not-for-profit social services agency serving vulnerable children and families in Detroit. Nearly $120,000 was raised for the cause.
