BERKLEY (WWJ) – Forgotten Harvest and Westborn Markets will work together for the ninth consecutive year to drive hunger out of Metro Detroit with a Champagne Cruise on Friday, August 19 from 6:00 to 10:00 pm.

Last year alone, the Cruise raised enough money to provide 625,000 meals to the hungry in southeast Michigan. Following this year’s event, the organization and Westborn will have partnered to raise more than $1 million total over the past nine years.

Set to the backdrop of nostalgic cruising on Woodward and the sounds of Motown, Champagne Cruise’s red-carpet event greets guests with a Champagne Reception featuring chilled champagne and sample fare from some of Metro Detroit’s finest food and drink providers.

Participating eateries are Westborn Market, What Crepe, Maggiano’s Little Italy, Lady Louisa’s, Zazio’s, Brio Tuscan Grille, Real Bar BQ, Dirty Dog Jazz Café and caterer Culinary Associates. Blazo’s Pie Shoppe and The Cupcake Station will provide deserts with beverages supplied by Biggby Coffee.

The Champagne Cruise will also hosts a silent auction, featuring VIP tickets or passes and other packages for experiencing the best of Metro Detroit.

Modern Tribe, featuring Charles and Gwen Scales, will play the musical selections throughout the evening. This duo brings modern Detroit soul with strong lead and background vocals.

The Champagne Cruise has grown steadily each year to become a staple preview event to the annual cruise on Woodward. Westborn Market is located in Berkley alongside Woodward Avenue between 11 and 12 Mile Roads.

Must be 21 or older to attend. Tickets are $150 each ($100 of which is tax-deductible) and can be purchased online or at the door. For more information, visit forgottenharvest.org.
