Never let it be said that Detroiters don’t excel in philanthropy. Perfect example is that shortly after the tickets to the Detroit Institute of Arts upcoming Gala Celebration went on sale, the $5,000 ticket level sold out immediately. This extraordinary event will take place at the museum Nov. 11 with the theme, “Enlightenment and Rejoicing,” supporting the DIA while lifting up art in the spirit of community. For the first time ever, guests will be given the opportunity to dine in the gallery spaces. While some traditional table seating will be available, most guests will enjoy salon seating, a community theme that encourages a more conversational atmosphere, similar to one’s living room. This year’s co-chairs are Frances Eisenberg, Nicole Eisenberg, Barbara Fisher, Brooke Fisher and JulietteOkotie-Eboh. Ticket levels of $2,500 and $750 are still available.
