Singer-songwriter and nine-time Grammy Award winner Sheryl Crow will headline the Motor City Car Crawl Charity Gala taking place in downtown Detroit at Campus Martius on August 7, 2021. 

The charitable event is part of the first-time Motor City Car Crawl, produced by the Detroit Auto Dealers Association (DADA) and the Downtown Detroit Partnership (DDP), a free, outdoor, walkable event that will kick off at noon, Thursday, Aug. 5 and last through Sunday, Aug. 8. 

“Following a year that had a negative impact on many organizations, especially non-profits, we are thrilled to create and host a new event that will raise money for children’s charities,” said Doug North, DADA Special Events Chairman. “We are especially thankful to feature a big name, like Sheryl Crow, as our headliner to help draw people downtown.” 

In addition to a performance by Sheryl Crow, the ticketed Charity Gala will feature an array of food and beverage offerings. The Gala will raise money for nine Detroit children’s charities including, Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan, Boys Hope Girls Hope Detroit, Children’s Center, The Children’s Foundation, Detroit PAL, Judson Center, March of Dimes Metro Detroit, University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and Detroit Auto Dealers Association Charitable Foundation Fund, a fund of the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan. 

“Our partnership with Rod Alberts and the DADA continues to grow with this exciting announcement of Sheryl Crow as the headliner,” said Eric Larson, CEO, Downtown Detroit Partnership. “Public spaces continue to provide unique opportunities for our community to come together in Downtown Detroit and this ticketed Gala will provide critical financial support to nine local children’s charities.”
