Ladies' Night - Cancelled due to COVID-19
Ladies' Night is our second largest event. The dinner and dance event is to honor our wives with gifts and elegant dining. While we gather, guests are invited to enjoy cocktails & hors d'oeuvres. Once gathered, we transition to awards, dinner, and the raffle.
Ladies' Night has been cancelled due to concerns regarding COVID-19. This event will be rescheduled at a later date. Individuals who have reserved rooms at the Detroit Marriott must cancel their reservation 24 hours prior to arrival to avoid fees. Each guest is responsible for canceling their own reservation since they made their own reservation.
We are reaching out to each registrant to ensure they are aware of these Ladies' Night changes - look for an email from us!
