Held at Detroit's Ford Field, AutoGlow will feature spectacular food and drinks, Roaring '20s era decor, live music and entertainment. During the evening, guests will enjoy a pre-reception prior to the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) Charity Preview, as well as '20s-inspired cuisine, live jazz and dancing upon their return from the NAIAS event.
