Mt. Clemens, MI — Celebrating with big hair and cans of hairspray, well not as much as what was used in the actual 80’s era, its the ninth annual 80’s charity event also known as “80’s Party For a Purpose”. The event is to raise some money for some worthy charities. This year the charities are Great Lakes Burn Camp (for Kids- 6-17 years of age), Families of Service Men & Women (Blue Star Mothers Chapter #180) and Friends of Jacob (Supporting families of children with Autism).

Since 2011 80’s Party For A Purpose has raised over $100,000 on assorted events and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, according to their website. The organization is founded by Dean Johnson and the organization board members include Kelley Metter, Kristie Swailes, John O’Brien, Tammy Churches, Paul Pirrone, and Cyndie Reiterman.

From where the original location of 80’s Party For A Purpose started, the location has changed throughout the years. Each year the event has grown larger than the year before. However, this is the second year in a row, that the 1620 capacity Emerald Theater in Mt. Clemons, Michigan hosted the event. The charity event will be hosted on Saturday, May 18, 2019. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at  

The band Rockstar. Members include Kenny Allen (Vocals), Jaime Trevino (Guitar), Steve Lane (Guitar), Mike Scott (Bass), and G (Drums). Image provided by 80’s Party For a Purpose.

The 80’s Party For A Purpose will host a multitude of 80’s pop icon (if you were ever a child of the ’80s or are pop culture enthusiasts, you would recognize). There will be a car show, showcasing iconic vehicle from the 80’s era, a Best Dressed contest (for people who will be dressed in 80’s theme), a special appearance by Ghostbusters Detroit, a Video DJ and the tribute band Rockstar will be hitting the stage for the big event.    

After the event, make sure you come back to Digital Beat’s website. We will be capturing the event for the website. Digital Beat Magazine will be photographing the night’s event. So if are going to be in the Mt. Clemens area and have a spare can of hairspray handy, then you might want to check out the this 80’s era party for a good purpose.
