Downtown Networking Tailgate


Thank you to all who came to our 2nd Annual Downtown Networking Tailgate on September 22, 2022, in downtown Detroit at the One Campus Martius building!

Young professionals from over 20 different companies in and around Detroit, participated in this unique networking event. All who attended took in the incredible view, enjoyed delicious food and drink, made new connections, and learned more about DRDFS!

We had ten DRDFS Next Level Scholar Alumni join us from seven different colleges to share their stories and explain how DRDFS made a difference in their lives. We are so proud of all they have accomplished and thank them for taking the time to share their stories.

We also want to thank our sponsors. On behalf of all of our students, we appreciate your support! 

If you missed it this year, please save the date for next year. We will be having our 3rd Annual Downtown Networking Tailgate on Thursday, September 21, 2023, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. 

As we draw closer to the event we will have information regarding tickets and sponsorships. In the meantime, contact Christa Alessandri-Howley at if you have any questions.

Detroit Regional Dollars for Scholars is proud to partner with MCAN to work toward the shared goal of 60% college attainment by 2030.
