WEST BLOOMFIELD, MI (April 30, 2013) –Tapper’s Diamonds & Fine Jewelry has joined the Infinity and Ovation Yacht Charters and other local bridal businesses to host an annual charitable event called Party at the Port.

Party at the Port will be held from 6-12 p.m. Friday, May 10 at the Waterview Loft at Port Detroit (130 Atwater, Detroit, MI).

“We are proud to partner with the Infinity and Ovation Yacht Charters on Party at the Port,” says Ann Duke, director of marketing for Tappers Diamonds & Fine Jewelry. “As soon as we learned more about the event’s beneficiary, Wish Upon a Wedding, Tapper’s jumped at the chance to become involved. The idea of helping loving couples faced with serious life altering and life-altering circumstances, the chance to enjoy a wedding day full of beauty and bliss, is heartwarming,” she explains.

Billed as an elegant, nautically chic fundraiser, Party at the Port is slated to be an annual event hosted at one of Detroit’s newest event venues. For the price of an average wedding gift ($100), patrons will enjoy a gourmet strolling dinner, premium open bar, custom martini drinks, live entertainment, custom dessert stations and several showcase surprises from the most renowned vendors in the wedding and event industry all before the backdrop of the Detroit skyline next to the river. Tickets ($100) are available at www.partyattheport.com.
