It’s finally the weekend! Check out this list for a variety of local events that are happening this weekend.


Community Development Drinks- ioby Detroit

From the event description:

*Got a great idea to get good done in your neighborhood?*

Join Brooke and Joe for a low key Happy Hour and meet other Detroiters excited about positive change. Trade stories, get tips and tricks, and maybe even meet some like-minded folks you can team up with to bring your project to life. *Plus, if you share your great idea for change, we’ll buy you a drink!*

*Questions?* Contact Brooke Harris at or Joe Rashid at

*What is ioby?*

ioby is a crowdfunding platform, but we’re so much more than that. ioby stands for “in our backyards,” but it also stands for taking care of each other, for civic participation, and for trusting neighbors to know what’s best for the neighborhood. Our crowdfunding platform helps connect local leaders (like you!) with the training and support they need to crowdfund in their communities for projects that make our neighborhoods healthier, greener, more livable, and more fun.
