Over 100 supporters came to the Birmingham Athletic Club dressed in Lions gear to cheer on the team and raise funds for HAVEN. The event provided critical resources for HAVEN’s domestic and sexual violence services. HAVEN’s Tailgate featured a gourmet BBQ buffet, silent & live auctions, and an inspiring keynote from Kelly ‘Native Child Brown’ Mays, a therapist, poet and advocate. The Detroit Lions teams up with HAVENeach year to demonstrate that this issue affects everyone and to encourage men and women to be part of the solution through dialogue and awareness. Approximately $30,000 was raised.
