Detroit Lions’ starting linebacker, Stephen Tulloch, will be hosting a wine tasting event on Monday, December 12, 2011, at Tre Monte Ristorante, located at 1695 East Big Beaver Rd, Troy MI. The event will feature wines offered by Veritas Distributors as well as strolling hors d’oeuvres and a live auction of various sports memorabilia. Funds generated from this event will benefit the Stephen Tulloch Foundation, supporting Operation 55.
Operation 55 has taken over 100 kids to the Lion King 3-D movie, launched a cupcake with a Michigan-based Just Baked Cupcake Stores, hosted sets of 55 kids from different organizations and foundations at every Detroit Lions home game, hosted an essay competition, luncheon and assembly at the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy and partnered with Dr. David Bradley of Studio 32 giving 55 kids from the Covenant House complimentary dental services.
“Coming to Detroit was a great decision! The fans here are special – they are true fans and really support us. I’m hoping to see a lot of fans at the event so I can thank them for their support throughout this season.”
Tickets to the event are $55 and special pricing will be offered for wines purchased at the event. To purchase tickets, visit www.tulloch55.eventbrite.com
