Me & You and Fashion for a Roof

Fashion can exclude people and fashion can bring people together. Here in Detroit we have a pretty tight knit fashion community that takes care of each other and supports one and other. When local designers and businesses learned that Brenda Brown, who manages the catering at The Masonic Temple, needed help, they stepped up and found a way to help her. They are throwing an event called “Me & You and Fashion for a Roof’ at The Masonic Temple this Saturday, February 23rd, to help raise funds for Brenda and her family. This event will feature music, fashion and a silent auction. 
Brenda is a 64 year old Detroit resident who not only works for The Masonic Temple, but also is the sole caregiver for her 98 year old mother and 46 year old mentally disabled son. She is a hardworking women who is trying to do it all by herself. She owns a modest home in Highland Park that has a very leaky roof. She looked into repairing that roof and learned that it would cost around $10,000, an amount of money that she does not have. This leak is slowly destroying the inside of her home and creating an unsafe environment for herself and the two loved ones that she takes care of. She needs a roof and we as a community can help her get it.

This event will feature designer Fotoula Lambros, Noir Leather, Maestros Dog Haus, Moriginals Kids Designs, music from  Damn Panic Productions featuring Jackin’4 l3eats and Dr. Unk, and a performance from the Doppelganger Circus Sideshow. Tickets are $20 a piece and are available at Noir Leather (124 West 4th St. in Royal Oak), online at or at the door the day of the show. 100% of the proceeds will go to Brenda and getting her and her family a new roof. This is a great way to check out some new fashion and make a change in the community around you!
