It’s was a night to celebrate courage, commitment and professional excellence!  On Thursday, March 15th, the Urban League of Detroit & Southeastern Michigan honored their 2018 Distinguished Warriors.  The annual fundraiser dinner was held before a packed ballroom of guests at the downtown Detroit Marriott Renaissance Hotel. 

Action News Anchor Glenda Lewis served as the mistress of ceremonies for the event where Bob Berg, Elliott Hall, Ron Hall, Sr., Joyce Hayes Giles and Walter Watkins received their well-deserved awards and public recognition.  WXYZ-TV/Channel 7 had the pleasure of producing the videos about the five honorees who excelled in the fields of public relations, law, and business. 

Wright Lassiter III, President & CEO of the Henry Ford Health System was this year’s honorary dinner chairman.  He joined Detroit Urban League President & CEO N. Charles Anderson in paying tribute to his organization’s latest group of Distinguished Warriors.  Click on the individual videos to enjoy the Warriors’ accomplishments.  It was a night to remember!
