It’s back to school time and fall events are in full swing, so I’m really excited that this event I’m announcing today is bringing both of those things together. I’m partnering with J. McLaughlin to host a Sip & Shop event at their store in downtown Birmingham. I’m thrilled to be partnering with a great local charity for this event, as well. 15% of the proceeds from the night will go to support the Detroit Achievement Academy.
As a mom, education is so important to me and I love that the Detroit Achievement Academy is making a great education possible for children who might otherwise have access to it. The Detroit Achievement Academy is a free public charter school for kids in kindergarten through fourth grade. The school serves an extremely high-poverty population and has been the highest performing school in Detroit all three years it has been open. Last year, the school had academic growth in the 99th percentile nationally. DAA relies on private donations for over half of its annual operating budget and I’m so happy to host this event support this wonderful school that is bringing so much positive change to the lives of its students.
