If you’re anything like me, you love vintage furniture AND seven-course dinners. Especially when they’re combined.

On Thursday, June 28th from 6p.m.-9:30p.m., you can help Detroit’s innovative project of Murals in the Market with a fundraising dinner at 900 Tower + Terrace in Eastern Market.

Along with enjoying a seven-course family style dinner prepared by Chef Marc Djozlija of Wright and Co. and his team, with wine and cocktails (obviously) included, participants can bid on original painted chairs made by some of the city’s most notorious artists. Many of the artists are also creators of Murals in the Market, too.

Attendees can see the highly-discussed murals from viewpoints they’ve never seen before while being able to chat with the festival crew and alumna as well.

All of the funds from the event will go solely to the Murals in the Market cause— unify the residents and business owners of Eastern Market by the power of public art, encourage year-round liveliness, increase activity and economic impact in the neighborhood, harness underused spaces, and create a stronger bond throughout the community.

Our very own Candice Simons is part of the hosting committee, along with Chef Marc Djozlija (Wright and Co.), Dan and Vivian Carmody (Eastern Market Corporation), Rick and Yolanda Williams (Distinct Life/Cream Blends), Paige Lustig (PageBoy), and Melinda Anderson (Detroit Month of Design).

The event itself is sold out, but don't fret if you don't have tickets! A block party to support Murals in the Market will go down on September 15th, presented by Paxahau, 1xRUN, and Detroit Hustles Harder. There will be live music too, with the likes of DJ Jazzy Jeff, Sheefy McFly, and more.

Hope you're ready to have some super jel friends over some one-of-a-kind chairs.

Wine, dine, and keep paintin' on,

Autumn.
