On behalf of the many small business owners in the City of Detroit, Quicken Loans, Detroit Smart Pages Newspaper,
and Detroit Development Fund, we are asking for your support and participation in the Fifth Annual “Thank You” to
Detroit Neighborhood Small Business Owners.
To help bridge the gap between the economic development efforts going on in Downtown and Midtown by
recognizing the efforts of these unsung business owners as equal contributors to Detroit’s resurgence.
A collaborative of business, civic, community organizations and individuals was formed to create the Annual Awards
Ceremony and Dinner and use this as the foundation to build on other projects to sustain small businesses.
