FLINT, MI (October 1, 2015) – More than 200 guests will visit the Flint Farmers’ Market on Wednesday, October 14, 2015 to celebrate the 13th Annual Suits & Sauce Dinner presented by Fathead, LLC; QuickenLoans and Famous Dave’s BBQ.

The evening kicks off at 6:00 pm with a silent auction and cocktail hour sponsored by Diplomat Pharmacy followed by the dinner at 7:00 with the meal compliments of Famous Dave’s.

The Community Hero Award was established in 2008 as a way to recognize an individual or group for a significant investment of time, talent and treasure in youth living in Flint, Michigan.  The award was named in recognition of Fathead CEO and Flint native, Patrick McInnis, whose investment in the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Flint has directly resulted in a more vibrant and positive organization where area youngsters can learn, play and grow into productive citizens.  Congressman Kildee joins other distinguished past award honorees such as Dr. Nita Kulkarni, Judge Duncan Beagle, Detroit Shock, Tom Izzo, Congressman Dale E. Kildee and Mateen Cleaves.

Congressman Kildee is being honored for his dedication and support of our youth, as well as our families throughout our community.  It is a great honor to recognize Congressman Kildee as the 2015 Patrick McInnis Community Hero Award recipient.
