The 33rd Detroit International Wine Auction (DIWA) featuring Michael Martini, Master Winemaker at Louis M. Martini Winery promises to be a spectacular evening.  More than 500 people will partake in wine, food, and a rousing Live Auction to benefit CCS’s undergraduate student scholarships and free art programs for Detroit youth.  The College for Creative Studies' (CCS) passion is transforming students from unfinished canvases into masterpieces. When they graduate, they are individual thinkers who advance the world of art and design.  BusinessWeek named CCS one of the top design schools in the world and Her Campus lists it as one of “The 8 Most Creative Colleges in the Country.”  Last year’s event raised $1.8 million.
