Dinner + Detroit Synergy

For almost a year now, there has been a group of people who have held a monthly dinner party at Gracie See Pizzeria (6889 Greenfield). The next one will be this coming Thursday, April 16 from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. This time around, the monthly dinner party gets stepped up a notch.

Every month for several years now, the good folks at Detroit Synergy have done a monthly social event on the third Thursday of each month at different bars and restaurants throughout Detroit. Oddly enough, it's called "Third Thursday". This time around, their Third Thursday social event will be held in conjunction with the monthly Warrendale dinner party.

It's two events in one, baby!

Anyway, one of the unique things about Detroit Synergy's Third Thursday events is that they ask participants to bring something that will benefit a local non-profit. This month, the designated non-profit that they are targeting is none other than the Warrendale Community Garden.

The awesome group of volunteers who run the Warrendale Community Garden have a wish list of items that they would like to support their work. If you're available to attend the monthly get together this coming Thursday at Gracie's, your donation of anything on their wish list is greatly appreciated. It doesn't matter whether you donate something from their program needs list or their administrative needs list. Your support is greatly appreciated.
