The Detroit International Wine Auction (DIWA), which has raised more than $30.5 million since 1991, ranks as one of the top charitable wine auctions in the United States, and is number one in the Midwest. Metropolitan Detroit businesses as well as wineries from across the world contribute to the auction as sponsors, auction lot donors and auction participants. Proceeds from the event support undergraduate CCS student scholarships and free art programs for Detroit youth. Guests who attend DIWA are local business leaders and philanthropists, as well as fine wine and art enthusiasts.
The annual Student Exhibition Opening reception and sale showcases to more than 3,000 attendees, the best student artwork from each CCS department. Proceeds from art sales go directly to students, while proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships help fund scholarships and community outreach programs. The Student Exhibition has grown into one of the nation’s best events – and opportunities – of its kind, for art lovers and buyers as well as those who appreciate the value of marketing to such valuable audiences.
