DETROIT -

Tickets for the fundraising preview of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) 2013 are now on sale.

The charity preview presented by Charter One / RBS Citizens will be held at Detroit's Cobo Center on Friday, Jan. 18th.

The event raises millions every year for local children's charities.

Tickets start at $290 and the price is tax deductible.

Proceeds support vital services for children of all ages in the Detroit region.

Since 1976, Charity Preview has raised more than $87 million for Southeastern Michigan children's charities; nearly $40 million in the last 10 years.

"Detroit is standing tall, and Charity Preview is evidence of the resiliency of our city, our region and our industry," said Jim Seavitt, NAIAS 2013 chairman. "To the surprise of no one, this area continues to be one of the most generous in the world. Charity Preview makes it possible for us to come together as a community on one special night, focus on the needs of our children, and deliver a very large financial gift of which we can all be proud."
