6:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Many people know and love Denise because of her amazing work for the city of Ypsilanti, Michigan. Ypsilanti has been her muse since the 1970s when she was a student at Eastern.
She is a driving force behind the Ypsilanti Crossroads festival – helping to bring it into being as organizer, volunteer coordinator, operations director and much more. She has advocated for the city passionately, intelligently and articulately.
It would be fair to say that tens of thousands of people in Southeast Michigan have benefited from her work. She is a compassionate woman, helping anyone and everyone around her. She is used to being the person lending her aid to someone in need, but right now – she could use a little help.
Denise has been diagnosed with lung cancer and she is undergoing chemo and radiation treatments–fighting the good fight with dignity, amazing grace and incredible courage.
All proceeds go to Denise to help with medical expenses.
