Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending a VIP Private Reception for the 2018 North American International Auto Show sponsored by Ford Motor Company, held at the UAW-Ford Headquarters in Detroit. The auto show is an annual gem and treat for Detroit. Speaking of treats, Grammy Award-nominated singer Ro James provided an intimate performance for journalists, tastemakers and style influencers.
James wasn’t the only star in the building. We were also able to catch a preview of some of new 2019 Ford vehicles.
WXYZ-TV Anchor Glenda Lewis was the emcee for the event. She is still one of the nicest people you ever want to meet. We had one of those ‘girlfriend” moments remembering her mom, legendary WXYZ-TV Anchor Diana Lewis who has since retired but is not forgotten.
From shrimp cocktail on ice to sexy cocktails on the rocks, the event was a nice prelude to what’s to come for the next two weeks. Fasten your seat belt, the 2018 NAIAS is sure to take us for the ride of our lives. The auto show opens to the public on Saturday, January 20, 2017.
