ROJO MEXICAN BISTRO PRESENTS “DETROIT SUPPORTS JAPAN” HOSTED BY ERIN NICOLE OF WXYZ & ELITE MODEL TOMMY CUPPLES

Rojo Mexican Bistro will host a relief benefit “Detroit Supports Japan” on Tuesday March 29, 2011 from 6:00- 9:00 p.m. , at its Novi location.  Erin Nicole of WXYZ  & local Elite model Tommy Cupples will host the benefit in which proceeds will go to the organization Global Giving through its Japan Relief Fund.

 

On March 11, 2011 the North coast of Japan experienced a 9.0 megathrust earthquake, one of the largest ever recorded, shortly after a large scale tsunami ensued and created massive destruction and the loss of many lives. “In the wake of the devastation I felt compelled to do something to help the people of Japan, as coincidence would have it a friend of mine local model Tommy Cupples shared the same sentiment he wanted to do something so I jumped on the bandwagon to bring to life  “Detroit Supports Japan”.

 

Rojo Mexican Bistro will donate the proceeds from the event to the charitable organization Global Giving (www.globalgiving.org). Other sponsors include: Valiant Public Relations & Events, HDC Management, The Diamond Vault of Troy, EXA, & Ambassador Magazine. There will be a silent auction to raise additional funds, as well as EXA will be selling “Detroiters for Japan” t-shirts to support the Japan Relief Fund with Global Giving. More information can be found on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/DiamondVaultofTroy.

 

“This is a great opportunity for Metro-Detroiters to come together and party for a cause” says Tommy Cupples, event host “Japan needs the international community’s help and Detroit wants to be part of that push.”

About Global Giving

All donations go through the GlobalGiving Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 organization, which receives a nominal 15% fulfillment fee. This helps cover the cost of operating GlobalGiving – finding and vetting projects, providing training and support to project leaders, attracting donors, and maintaining an innovative, informative web presence. It also includes the fees assessed by vendors for credit card processing, wires, etc.

Most donors choose to make an incremental contribution at checkout to cover this fee and ensure that 100% of their donation goes to the project(s) that they have selected to support. This results in an average of 90% of all funds donated getting to the grassroots project(s) selected.
