Hackel, and Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, focused on current public policy issues facing 8 Mile and the region. This year's event, "Energy on 8" will be moderated by Detroit's own Huel Perkins of Fox2 News and "Let it Rip!"

    No small garden party, this event brings together 800+ business owners, elected officials, movers, shakers, decision makers, and local stakeholders for a thoughtful and provocative discussion, while raising money for the tangible improvements that make a positive impact along 8 Mile Boulevard.

    Join us as we celebrate 8 Mile as the nucleus where communities connect for innovation and vision that is helping to ENERGIZE our region's comeback!
