The fundraiser will take place in the form of a charity kick ball tournament on Friday at Ford Field in downtown Detroit. Members from attending offices will team up to compete against one another for dominance of the sand! This is a great chance for us to come together and work as a team. We are honored to help support such a fine cause!
In addition to fundraising for JDRF, we will be enjoying a tour of Ford's Global Headquarters. This is a great opportunity to see a true industry leader in action. At the time of its incorporation, the Ford Motor Company was a small operation, composed of 10 man in a converted Detroit wagon factory. Flash forward 100 years, the Ford Motor Company is the second-largest producer of cars and trucks in the world.
To finish off the weekend, special guest Edsel Ford II will be delivering a speech. He is a 1981 graduate from the Program for Management Development at Harvard Business School and a current board member of the Ford Motor Company. He is a former COO for Ford’s Motor Credit Division and was elected to VP of Ford in 1993. He still remains active in many philanthropic endeavors. This is a excellent opportunity to learn from one of the giants of industry. We cannot wait to see what he has to say!
