BravoBravo! Event Was a Success!

On June 7th, partygoers gathered at the Detroit Opera House for the annual BravoBravo! fundraiser. The annual event, which first took place in 1999, has been named Detroit’s “Party of the Year” and has since then helped raise over $1 million in support of the Michigan Opera Theatre and Detroit Opera House. Proceeds provide funding for artistic and educational programs.

Among the attendees were graduates from the culinary programs of Dorsey Schools’, participating in an externship with Dorsey Catering. Dorsey Catering helped support the event by providing ($2,000 of) complementary catering. When asked about their willingness to participate in this event, a Dorsey Schools spokesperson explained: “As a Michigan-based company, Dorsey Schools has a steadfast commitment to the people of Michigan and we’re happy to provide support to both the Michigan Opera Theatre and the Detroit Opera House.” For the past 14 years, the event has helped to gather a new and younger demographic, while at the same time introducing them to the Michigan Opera Theatre.
