Every year MHPN hosts a Fall Benefit in a unique and interesting historic site. The events are typically in southeast or central Michigan, and always include a great time. Past events have been held in a historic home in Lansing; at the Detroit Club, Detroit; the Municipal Building/Christman Building, Lansing; the Riverside Arts Center in Ypsilanti; Harmonie Club/Virgil Carr Cultural Center in Detroit’s Paradise Valley. Food, music, both a silent and live auction, and a chance to network with preservationists from across the state make the event the place to be each fall.
The proceeds from the benefit and the auctions help to support the ongoing operations of our organization and help to facilitate preservation in Michigan.
The 2012 Party was a great event! Check out some of the press and blog coverage of the event – and the GAR building – here:
