Exotic vehicles, Wolfgang Puck, and high fashion set to launch event unlike any other….
“There’s not a collection of vehicles like this in one room anywhere else in the world,” said a beaming Scott LaRiche, chairman, NAIAS 2015. “This is an event unlike any other.”
The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) reveals the lineup of vehicles that will grace The Gallery at MGM Grand Detroit, the first of several official NAIAS events to be held in Detroit over a jam-packed two weeks.
And, though few in number, LaRiche said tickets are still available to Detroit’s most exclusive car event featuring more than $7 million worth of the industry’s most iconic, exotic and luxury vehicles.
The eighth annual edition of The Gallery at MGM Grand Detroit will be held Sat., Jan. 10, beginning with a private dinner at 7 pm. A portion of the proceeds from the evening will benefit Henry Ford Hospital (HFH), Fundraising Partner of The Gallery. LaRiche said funds will be generated through the sale of only 300 tickets at $1,000 per ticket. HFH, Detroit’s premier medical institution, has been a critical part of the community for generations, and will celebrate its centennial in 2015.
