Tuesday, August 15, 2017 – Franklin Hills Country Club – 5:30 p.m.
Rub-a-Dub is ORT Michigan’s largest fundraiser of the year, attracting nearly 500 attendees in 2016 and generating over $500,000 for ORT. This amazing event, which grew out of a home-grown gathering started in 1975 at the home of Doreen and the late David B. Hermelin and now takes place at Franklin Hills Country Club, is considered the premier charity event of the summer. The event consists of a raffle with a $5,000 Somerset Collection gift card as the grand prize, in addition to an extensive silent auction with a variety of valuable items donated by local, high-end retail stores and restaurants. A live auction offers trips, jewelry, automobile leases, and one-of-a-kind experiences that money cannot buy. In the spirit of the first Rub-a-Dub event, guests are given Instant Lottery Tickets to “rub off” with the hope that any earnings are donated back to ORT. All of this is complemented by great food and the opportunity to network with metro Detroit’s most influential business leaders and an audience with significant purchasing power. The event also raises funds through a 200+ page Ad Journal that is distributed to all guests at the event and through corporate sponsorships. The Bottle Crew served as Presenting Sponsor in 2016.
