Sheryl Crow performed at the 2014 NAIAS Charity Preview.
Attendees of the black tie gala included veterans of the auto industry and of the city’s social scene.
We do not even work in the auto industry, but we come because it’s such an awesome night for Detroit,” said Mary Golota, who attended with her husband, Jeff Golota.
Even though ticket prices went up $50 this year, to $350 a piece, sales far surpassed last year.
This year 13,761 tickets sold, compared to 13,069 last year.
That means the gala raised almost $1 million more than last year. The grand total this year is $4.8 million, which will go to nine different children’s charities.
