THE STORY:

FRIENDS OF BELLE ISLE INC wrote -

Help The Friends of Belle Isle and be part of saving a Detroit classic for generations to come. The money raised will be used to replace the damaged Scott Fountain's Pewabic Tiles.

Be a part of saving a Detroit Classic for generations to come.  The Friends of Belle Isle will host a fundraising event "Putting Detroit Classics...back together again!" on Friday, June 3rd, 2011, from 6 pm until 8 pm at Pewabic Pottery, 10125 E. Jefferson Avenue.  Hors d'oeuvres and wine will be served with proceeds benefiting the FOBI Preservation Fund to be used to replace the damaged Scott Fountain’s Pewabic Tiles.  Support levels are per person at:  $50 Crab, $100 Lobster, $150 Starfish and $200 Seahorse.  RSVP for the event is requested by June 4.  Tickets will be held at the door.  Reservations and or donations may be made through www.Crowdrise.com Questions may be directed to the FOBI Office at 313-331-7760.

On September 17, 2010, in an effort to repair the leaking Scott Fountain, the beautiful Pewabic Tiles that once adorned the rim of the fountain for 85 years were damaged during the process of re-cementing the basin.  The Friends of Belle Isle together with Pewabic Pottery are working with the City of Detroit, Departments of Recreation and General Services to replicate these beautiful tiles originally created and designed by Mary Chase Perry Stratton.  Efforts are estimated at about $150,000.  Roberta Henrion, FOBI President, stated that she would like to see this happen in as short of time as possible and is firing up efforts to raise the necessary funding.

Please come out and join us in helping to replace these beautiful tiles to the Scott Fountain, a symbol of Belle Isle that has graced Detroit since 1925.

If you cannot make the event but would like to make a donation toward this effort, please  donate via this page. 

If you cannot donate or come to the event, please help us by forwarding this to all interested parties and encourage them to pass along to others.

Thank you,  Roberta
