Preservation Detroit will be holding its Annual Membership Fundraiser Event at the Belle Isle Aquarium on Thursday, April 25, 2013, from 6:30 to 9:00 pm.  

There are still tickets available for the Annual Membership Event which can be purchased through Preservation Detroit's website.  Ticket sales will help Preservation Detroit continue its mission to preserve, promote, and protect the buildings and structures that uniquely define Detroit, and a portion of proceeds from this event will be donated to the ongoing restoration of the tanks at the Belle Isle Aquarium.
Supporters who attend the event will also have an opportunity to learn more about the Aquarium from Vance Patrick, the head of aquarium projects, and his dedicated Aquarium volunteers.
We look forward to seeing everyone again at this year's membership fundraiser event, and we thank you for your continued support over the years of Preservation Detroit.
About the Aquarium 
Designed by noted architect Albert Kahn, the Belle Isle Aquarium, located on Belle Isle Park in Detroit, Michigan, opened on August 18, 1904 and was the oldest continually operating aquarium in North America until it was closed in 2005.  Thanks to the efforts of the Belle Isle Conservancy, the volunteer-run Aquarium reopened in the fall of 2012 and has been open to the public on Saturdays ever since.


A portion of the proceeds from the Preservation Detroit Annual Membership Event ticket sales will support the ongoing preservation of the Belle Isle Aquarium.
