It’s not every evening that you can have a filling dinner, served to you by a big-name Taylor “celebrity,” and have 10 percent of the profits (plus tips) go to benefit one of the most rewarding programs in the community – the Taylor Reading Corps!
But that’s exactly what is going to happen March 31 at the Big Boy Restaurant, 10450 Telegraph Road, Taylor, when notables from around the city converge during dinnertime, all for the benefit of the Taylor Reading Corps, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that recruits, trains and supervises a network of volunteers to work in the Taylor School District.
The TRC is totally dependent on grassroots’ donations, fund-raising, and literacy and foundations grants.
Many Taylor notables will be on hand to wait tables during the fundraiser. Those committed thus far are:
Dave Gorgon, former local newspaper journalist and retired city employee who now serves in a communications position with the City of Romulus
Doug Geiss, state representative
Diane Allen, the superintendent of Taylor School District and a former longtime principal in the district
Hoon-Yung Hopgood, state senator
Ray Basham, Wayne County Commissioner
Edward Bourassa, Taylor City Treasurer
Larry Domski, City Inspector and member of the Domski family that hosts the “True Meaning of Christmas Dinner” each and every year at the William Ford Senior Activities Center in Taylor
No reservations are needed. Just show up hungry!
