Never let it be said that Lear Corp. CEO Matt Simoncini doesn’t enjoy a good party. And boy, does he know how to host one. Last week, along with his wife, Mona, Matt invited about 150 people to join him in a lavish tent set up adjacent to the downtown Detroit building where the Lear Innovation Center is housed. Guests were treated like royalty by the talented staff at Forte Belanger, who provided a gourmet strolling supper. The occasion was a celebration for the benefactors of the Polish the Jewel luncheon, which will be hosted by the Belle Isle Conservancy on Oct. 12. And, just as you thought, the Simoncini party couldn’t get any better, they introduced the musical guests for the evening, the legendary R&B group the Stylistics. Guests danced and screamed as the iconic group performed nearly all of their hits in the intimate venue. The evening ended with Matt onstage with the performers, singing and dancing, like he was the lost member of the group.
