City Year Detroit’s Red Jacket Gala

City Year works to bridge the gap between the support that students need, and what their schools are designed and able to provide them in high-poverty communities. This year over 600 prominent community leaders will join City Year Detroit for the Red Jacket Gala, an inspirational evening dedicated to improving the educational opportunities for the students of Detroit.

Every year, City Year Detroit honors one individual with the Idealist in Action award, which recognizes remarkable Detroiters and extraordinary leaders who have demonstrated a powerful commitment to service for the city and its future.  This year the 2017 Idealist in Action Award is going to Matthew Simoncini, the President and CEO of Lear Corporation, for his work in the community.

Shareholders Maria Angileri and Frank Angileri are members of the host committee for the Red Jacket Gala.
