Animal House Party

Special thanks to guest writer Eliza Sorise-Sawyers from Animal House Party for writing this article.

Animal House Party is the brainchild of Hubert and Eliza Sawyers, principals of SorSaw Enterprises, LLC. AHP is the result of their desire to mix the perfect blend of music, charity and community. “The goal of AHP is to raise awareness beyond the usual animal-focused crowd and have a little fun along the way,” explained Hubert Sawyers III. “We’re also working to give animal rescue shelters a dialogue with new audiences on less-known and less-understood animal issues in the Metro Detroit community.”

On Saturday, August 6, 2011, SorSaw and the Animal House Party team hosted a successful and well-publicized fundraiser for the Michigan Humane Society. Approximately 200 people gathered at the iconic Whitney restaurant for an evening of music, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Sponsors included Comerica Bank, Kresge Eye Institute, MGM Casino, WDIV and VitaminWater.

While the Animal House Party team engages their core audience year-round, the next main event will take place in September 2012 in Downtown Detroit, venue to be determined. The program will continue to focus on raising animal welfare awareness amongst young Metro Detroiters through the support and participation of local businesses and community leaders.
