Detroit Historical Society Ball

Tom Buhl, Detroit Historical Society Chairman of the Board 2010-2019, was honored at the annual Detroit Historical Society Ball. The event was staged at the iconic State Savings Bank in Detroit. Attendees were treated to cocktails, seated dinner with entertainment provided by Sean Blackman in Transit. Event proceeds will support key educational initiatives in 2020, including the re-imagining of the Detroit Historical Museum’s cornerstone educational exhibit, Frontiers to Factories. The evening raised $230,000.
