Anthony Ahee believes in supporting the arts and specifically, the Detroit Institute of Arts. A member of DIA's Founders Junior Council (FJC), Ahee believes getting younger generations involved in Detroit's arts scene is necessary for the museum as well as for Detroit.
"I think supporting the museum (DIA) is important. Getting younger people involved in art is really vital," Ahee said. Ahee is the third generation in his family to work in the Ahee family's internationally known jewelry business, Edmund T. Ahee Jewelers, located in Grosse Pointe Woods.
"What's being done at the DIA is really first class."
The Founders Junior Coucil (FJC) is one of the largest and most influential auxiliary groups at the Detroit Insitute of Arts. For nearly four decades,the FJC has worked with young Michigan professionals to organize exciting programs, like Fash Bash and Cirque, that attract a younger crowd to the DIA's phenomenal art collections.
To support the FJC's mission, Ahee Jewelers is hosting "Baubles and Bubbly"-a special event on Dec. 13 from 6-9 p.m. Ahee's will donate a portion of shoppers' purchases to the FJC Foundation. Shoppers need only mention the FJC to help donate.
"The DIA millage was a good start, but private donations are still needed," Ahee said.
