Motor City
Wine and Food Festival

CREATING DISTINCTIVE EVENTS
TO SUPPORT ADULT LITERACY PROGRAMS
SINCE 2012!
 
Get to know us~
The Motor City Wine and Food Festival
turned a “what if,” into a “why not” during the summer of 2012.
 
Our event on April 29, 2016 will give guests the opportunity
to take part in a  charity gala with proceeds to benefit
Adult Literacy Organizations in Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties. 
It is sure to be the talk of the town.

Our events range from sophisticated to educational,
from entertaining to one-of-a-kind.
Loosely based on the Scottsdale Culinary Festival and the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, the Motor City Wine and Food Festival combines the best
in food, spirits, fashion, flowers, music and yes -- cars.
 
The goals of the Motor City Wine and Food Festival are to raise funds to support adult literacy organizations in the tri counties,
and to raise awareness of the growing
 problem of illiteracy in our communities.
 
In Michigan, one in three adults reads below a sixth grade level.
The National Assessment of Adult Literacy (NAAL) found that:
Two thirds of students who cannot read proficiently
by the 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare.
More than 60 percent of all prison inmates are functionally illiterate.
90 percent of welfare recipients are high school dropouts.
It is estimated that the cost of illiteracy to businesses
and taxpayers is $20 billion per year.
 
Motor City Wine and Food Festival, a 501 (c)(3) organization will support the efforts of reducing illiteracy, and provide a forum for people to learn more about this issue.
We hope you will support our efforts.
