Event preview: Healthy Detroit benefit, 'Fowling for Fun(ds),' tonight, August 13

Posted By on Thu, Aug 13, 2015 at 11:21 AM

The local non-profit Healthy Detroit hosts its annual fundraiser this evening at the Fowling Warehouse. The event runs from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. and looks like a blast. As you probably know by now, Fowling is a very fun hybrid game, mixing bowling, football, and horseshoes.

Tickets are $35 here online, and $45 at the door. Entrance includes free food, fowling, drink tickets, music, a silent auction, and more.

Healthy Detroit writes that "support of any kind is tremendously helpful. All proceeds directly benefit our health and wellness programs in our three HealthParks — Patton Park, Farwell Park, and Adams-Butzel. Currently our programs consist of diabetes workshops, nutrition classes, yoga, zumba, kickboxing, and family fitness classes. 

Healthy Detroit’s vision includes the development of HealthParks throughout the city of Detroit. Combining the best practices found in public health and placemaking, a HealthPark is designed to build a culture of health through an inclusive, collaborative effort. HealthParks will provide residents with a one stop shop for everything needed to live healthy lives. This includes your typical park amenities, a farmer’s market, outdoor fitness center, preventive care clinic, and indoor/outdoor recreation/wellness center. It also includes the ongoing health-related programming necessary for lasting community engagement. Through this effort, HealthParks will essentially serve as town squares of healthy living in Detroit’s neighborhoods.
