NEXTGen Detroit to Celebrate Latke Vodka 9 with Big Splash November 30

November 4, 2013 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

Come for the latkes, come for the music, but most of all, come for the fun of the biggest holiday bash in town. This is Latke Vodka, hosted by Federation’s NEXTGen Detroit on the Saturday night following Thanksgiving.

Now in its ninth year, Latke Vodka returns to the Royal Oak Music Theatre, on November 30th from 9 p.m. to 2. a.m. The headlining band, Collision Six, will provide a full evening of entertainment – with a full bar, delicious latkes and other kosher holiday fare.Latke Vodka 9

Estimating a packed house with well over 1,000 in attendance this year, Karen Stoller, who co-chairs the event with Matt Barker, commented, “Latke Vodka is a homecoming for many, a reunion of friends and a celebration in its own right., For young Jewish adults in their 20s and 30s, it’s a night to be seen and to network. The event is also an easy and natural entry into young Jewish Detroit – a community growing in strength.”

“Call it ‘The Detroit Effect,’”  “says Rachel Wright, President of NEXTGen Detroit, “People here and around the country are taking notice of the opportunities, the leadership and the close-knit ties we have in our community.  The fact that we continue to increase our numbers – at events like Latke Vodka and the Menorah Lighting downtown, reflects the spirit and positive energy of a new generation determined to build a vibrant community and a greater Detroit.”

Tickets are $20 in advance, and $25 at the door. A portion of the cost of each ticket will go to the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit’s 2013 Annual Campaign to support the needs of our Jewish community.  REGISTER @
