Detroit Tigers Foundation

The Detroit Tigers Foundation is the official charity of the Detroit Tigers baseball club and is an affiliate of Ilitch Charities, a 501(c)(3) public charity. The mission of the Foundation is to enhance lives through the game of baseball with a focus on youth, education and recreation. From ticket donations and field renovation projects to an award winning, State-wide anti-bullying program, the Foundation aids in the development and funding of innovative programs that reach Tigers fans with positive messages and promote the good citizenship embodied in the storied history of the Detroit Tigers.

Keeping Kids in the Game

During the sold-out event, guests had exclusive ballpark and field access including self-guided tours of the home clubhouse and watched a private fireworks show. Guests also enjoyed live entertainment, extraordinary auction items, strolling dinner, drinks and cigars.

As a result, over $315,000 was raised to support children's health and youth baseball!

In addition, over 200 patients and family members from Children's Hospital of Michigan and C.S. Mott Children's Hospital enjoyed a special night at Comerica Park that included meeting and greeting Tigers players. The patients and their families were entertained by the Tigers Party Patrol, played games and enjoyed the Fly Ball Ferris Wheel before touring the home clubhouse and visiting the field!
