DETROIT — The Parade Company, producers of America’s Thanksgiving Parade® and the Target Fireworks, plans to light up the sky with the Target Fireworks VIP Rooftop Party, presented by Charter One, on Monday, June 27, 2011 from 5:30 – 11 p.m., high atop the Miller Parking Garage where guests will overlook the beautiful Detroit Riverfront and experience one of the summer’s hottest and largest fundraisers of the year benefiting The Parade Company.

The VIP Rooftop Party offers the best seats in the city to view the 53rd Annual Target Fireworks, where guests in the heart of the city will be surrounded by the feel of summer in northern Michigan – the rooftop will twinkle with fire flies, white lights, a sandy beach, sailboats and more. The night brings amazing live music by Michigan’s own Jill Jack, Annabelle Road and the Sun Messengers, food by Andiamo, and games and giveaways for adults and kids alike. The grand finale of the party is the 53rd Annual Target Fireworks, one of the world’s largest displays of fireworks, showcasing more than 10,000 pyrotechnic effects. The Target Fireworks begin at 10:06 p.m. Benefit tickets for the VIP Rooftop Party are $175 and children tickets (six and under) are $75.

“The VIP Rooftop Party presented by Charter One promises to be an amazing evening to support The Parade Company,” said Tony Michaels, President and CEO of The Parade Company. “We are extremely grateful to Charter One for their generosity in making this year’s rooftop fundraiser possible and to Target for their continued support and commitment in sponsoring this spectacular, world-class show, allowing The Parade Company to bring the fireworks to Detroit.”

“The VIP Rooftop Party and Target Fireworks are fabulous family events that showcase some of Michigan’s great treasures,” said Sandra Pierce, President & CEO of Charter One, Michigan and Chairman of the Michigan Thanksgiving Parade Foundation. “Charter One is very proud to support our region’s signature summer celebration.”
