Every Blue and White Night ticket sold is a gift to the Jewish Federation’s Annual Campaign and helps to support the needs of the Jewish people and build a vibrant Jewish future here in Detroit, in Israel and around the world.


Goes to JFMD’s Annual Campaign, and that goes to all sorts of sababa stuff like:

  • Supporting English programs in 32 schools, teaching 4,000 children
  • Funding the Youth Futures Program that assists at risk youth
  • Connecting young Detroiters to Israel through community Birthright trips
  • Supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs in our Partnership2Gether Region
  • Funding for emotional and medical support to help Ethiopian Israeli kids prepare to enter school


Goes to the cost of the party. That’s it. And includes all the hummus you can eat.
