More DYC Fundraiser Info

Drivers, area musicians and VIPs from Detroit and Windsor are expected to attend the APBA Detroit Gold Cup fund-raiser dinner party and auction at the Detroit Yacht Club on April 27.

The Gold Cup races on the Detroit River will be July 13-15. Money from the fundraiser will go toward operating expenses of the event.

WJR Radio's Frank Beckmann, the voice of Michigan football, will act as master of ceremonies, while musical entertainment will be provided by Detroit-area recording artist Dal Bouey.

A title sponsor is still being sought for the races. Interested parties can contact the DRRA at 586-774-0980.
