After 5 Detroit, which aims to showcase Detroit to young professionals, launched its new Social Club on November 6 at Fountain Bistro with a sold-out crowd of more than 100 people. Since the launch there have been many Social Club gatherings and there are plenty more to come in 2014. Kicking-off January 15, 2014, the Social Club will host events ranging from beer tastings to bowling.
“There is widespread agreement that the City of Detroit and its local business community would benefit greatly if more employees stayed downtown after work to patronize local bars, restaurants and retail establishments. This unique new program aims to make that happen,” said Kerry Doman, founder, After 5 Detroit.
Sponsors for the After 5 Social Club include Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Meridian Health Plan, City of Detroit Downtown Development Authority, Detroit Economic Growth Corporation, Downtown Detroit Partnership, General Motors and the GM Renaissance Center.
“The After 5 Social Club is a program with which Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and its team members are pleased to participate. Downtown Detroit has wonderful venues in which to work, live and play and After 5 Social Club is a great networking program to continue to expose those venues and opportunities,” said Tricia Keith, senior vice president, corporate secretary and services, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.
