ORT Michigan’s largest fundraiser, Rub-a-Dub, is taking place on Tuesday, August 18th at 5:30 p.m. at Franklin Hills Country Club. Regularly attended by 500 attendees, last year, the event generated over $800,000 for ORT’s global education network. This amazing fundraiser, which started in 1975 at the home of Doreen and the late David B. Hermelin, is considered the premier charity event of the summer and a great opportunity to network with metro Detroit’s most influential business leaders and community members.
The Rub-a-Dub event starts with hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and an extensive silent auction with high-end items. Guests then move outdoors for an elaborate barbeque dinner and a live auction offering trips, jewelry, automobile leases, and one-of-a-kind experiences that money cannot buy. Additionally, the event includes a raffle with a $5,000 Somerset Collection gift card as the grand prize, and you do not need to be at the event to win. The event also raises funds through a 200+ page Ad Journal that is distributed to all attendees and the through corporate sponsorships of over 30+ businesses. In the spirit of the first Rub-a-Dub event back in 1975, guests are given Instant Lottery Tickets to “rub off” with the hope that any earnings are donated back to ORT. We hope to see you at Rub-a-Dub 2020.
