Country star Frankie Ballard to headline benefit for Humble Design at the Fillmore on Sept. 19

Posted By on Fri, Aug 21, 2015 at 2:00 PM

The local non-profit Humble Design, which basically provides a welcoming and beautiful environment to recently homeless families (more on them below), hopes to raise some needed funds with their event to be held next month, on Sat., September 19th, at the Fillmore, when country singer Frankie Ballard headlines a charity concert, alongside the Motor City Horns.
Tickets for the event, which they are calling Gigs for Digs, are on sale now. General admission balcony tickets range from $25-$30 and are available right here. If you’re looking for a more elaborate night out, visit the Humble Design website at, where you can purchase tickets ranging from $100 to $150, which include dinner, drinks, and something called "an Afterglow Celebration," featuring "well-known Detroit native DJ Powdrblu."
Humble Design is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to helping homeless families in need. Humble Design turns four bare walls into a clean, dignified and welcoming home by repurposing gently used household goods. Humble Design partners with local area homeless and abuse shelters to identify families who are emerging out of shelters. Many of theses families are victims of abuse and have left behind all personal items upon escaping and entering an emergency shelter. When these families move into their new residence, Humble Design comes in and makes their house a home! Giving them back their dignity and hope for the future!
