80s Party For A Purpose

Why we do what we do...

80's Party for a Purpose is 100% ran by volunteers and our charity event was started 8 years ago by our founder Dean Johnson. 

The 80's team consist of 6 Board Members:  Kelley Metter, Kristie Swailes, John O'Brien, Tammy Churches, Paul Pirrone, our Graphic Art Director: Cyndie Reiterman, and our totally tubular consultant Kerry Johnson.

We are a group of lifelong friends working together, giving back to raise funds for local Metro Detroit area charities in need.  Since our first event in 2011, 80’s Party for a Purpose has raised over $100,000.

We honestly could not

ROCK THIS EVENT without these dudes!
