You are invited to:

Sonnets, Shopping & Champagne,

benefitting InsideOut


At The Peacock Room

     in the Historic Park Shelton,

15 E. Kirby (next to the DIA)

Thursday Feb. 23, 5 p.m. -- 8 p.m.


Shop and sip in salute of InsideOut Literary Arts Project, as the Detroit Snob clothing brand and the fabulous Peacock Room host an old school salon party. 


"I support InsideOut because language and art are such critical parts of a full education.  In the face of devastating cuts, they step up to fill a growing void, empowering our children with confidence and a voice,'' says Rachel Lutz, owner of the Peacock Room. "When we invest in InsideOut, our reward is that our students become our teachers.''

Ten dollars from the sale of each Detroit Snob, glam tee-shirt ($35 to $48) and 10% of all sales at the Peacock Room during the event will benefit IO, which is racing to meet a February 29th deadline to capture a $25,000 matching grant from Hollywood filmmaker Bob Shaye.  IO Founder, Terry Blackhawk will also debut her latest book, "The Light Between," with 60% of proceeds benefitting IO.


Together, Detroit Snob and The Peacock Room are redefining vintage Detroit.  Parking is free of charge inside of the Park Shelton's garage on Woodward Ave.


"Detroit Snobs know the value of education, literacy and creativity todetroit snob the survival of the human spirit,'' says Desiree Cooper, Detroit Snob founder, journalist and long time IO board member. "To give that gift to our young people is the best gift we can give to ourselves."


Can't stop and shop? Donate online --your support will count just the same. It's a great investment in a more creative Detroit, a goal we can all strut and feel snobby about.
