Charity vampire ball for Flint, MichiganAugust 17th, 2009 by Gabrielle Faust received 2 Comments »
“As you may know Flint, MI is an area that has been hit the hardest by the poor economy especially since we are “Vehicle City”, the center of GM and the auto industry. Sure the corporate offices are in Detroit (which gets all the media attention) but most of the factories are in and around Flint, factories that now sit empty as do many homes and businesses. Flint is an area that once employed over 80,000 workers in the automotive industry but now employs less than 1,000. Our unemployment rates are one of the highest in the country as are foreclosure rates. Entire neighborhoods are becoming ghost towns. One of the remaining gems in Flint is our fabulous Farmer’s Market which provides local farmers a place to sell their goods. This year will be the second annual Vampire Ball and we are hoping to make it bigger and better than last year’s event.“
