Detroit Crime Commission Sound the Siren

The Detroit Crime Commission hosted a high-energy event at Bleu Detroit, raising just over $40,000 to help extinguish human trafficking. Approximately 170 guests enjoyed music from Ben Sharkey and a strolling dinner provided by nine local restaurants. The evening was co-chaired by Stephani Yates and Amy Ben-Ezra. The Detroit Crime Commission’s mission is to act as a citizen ally to public and private organizations in southeast Michigan, by facilitating the prevention, investigation and prosecution of crime leading to a safer place to live, learn and work.
