On July 25, 2016 the Hantz Foundation hosted the 3rd Annual Charity Golf Scramble at the Hantz Golf Club of Tecumseh. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful day of golf accompanied by a southern summer BBQ, live music, beer tasting and cigar bar.

Brews, Views & 'Ques

Brews, Views & ‘Ques is a one of a kind beer tasting event on the Detroit River, just 4 miles west of the Downtown area. The legendary Roostertail is right across from Belle Isle offering a great view, as well as a view of the Detroit Skyline, perfect for the Detroit Fireworks that night. In addition, the Roostertail hosted a private fireworks show at 9:45pm. Guests enjoyed over 20 different breweries and lots of different barbecue! Everything there is to love about the summer in one spot.
